Soccer mom is stuck
so, my SD14’’s BM and BD decided to let her choose where and when she spends time. BD has sole legal and physical but BM does get one weekend a month, every other holiday, and 8 weeks in summer.
Everything was fine with driving 3 hours twice a month, knowing that SD was getting what she wanted. BM put her in Sea Cadets (military camp) which SD is good with. However, SD wants to be here for whole soccer season, which shortens her summer break with BM by 2 weeks, BM won’t budge. She says she is already losing enough time by putting her in camp for two weeks this summer, and one weekend a month. We have accommodated her, yet when it doesn’t benefit her, she goes back on her word. She lives 3 hours away and with this camp, it also takes time from us and also puts pressure on us to make sure she gets there, to camp, when she is with us. The driving usually falls on me.
Do I finally put my foot down? I think so.
