Editing this in order to shorten. For pro-active planning...
Drawing up a 2-2-5-5 parenting plan. I have M at 5pm until W at 5pm, Ex has 5pm W through 5pm F and we rotate every other weekend.
When school is in session, everything is good. However, when school is out of session (school closure day or summer break), I feel like I would get screwed on Fridays. Problem is that if it were my weekend with D, I would want to get an early start on Friday if school is out so we could leave early for camping trips or use the whole day for something (swimming, park, etc.).
Any thoughts on how I can work that into the plan?
I'd change the times to 9am M through 9am W, and Ex would have 9am W through 9am Friday. But I don't want to mess with waking D up early during summer break to take her to Ex's house and vice versa. And Ex is a stay at home mom, so I'm sure the manipulation aspect would eventually come into play "Well if you just stayed at mommy's on days off and summer break, you could sleep in" and so on.
OH - Residential parent of D5 after a long distance move by Ex. If your child(ren) aren't a priority, you will have no chance at gaining custody.
