skids in school, 50/50 custody, whats your schedule, what works doesnt work?
we have 50/50 and the current schedule is that we have ss every mon, and tues, and every other fri, sat, sun....so it rotates we have him 2 days and then for 5, and so on.
bm finally got a job (not to better herself, or to be stable for ss, but because her bf threatened to leave her) anyways, she has to work now so she just cant take having him for 5 straight days. and she told dh that she thinks they will need to change the schedule soon.
okay, dh arranged the schedule so that ss goes to day care mon, wed, fri...that way all exchanges are done through day care, and he does not have to see bm ever to get ss.
bm new schedule is that she does not work fridays...which means she would send ss on thursdays and keep him home fri. so two fridays a month he would have to meet her to get ss for our fri through tuesday visit...
bm wants things to go back to....if its our week we have ss mon, tues, fri, sat sun......and she would have ss wed thurs.......then the next week we have him wed and thurs, and she has him mon, tues, fri sat sun
this all just seems like way too much back and fourth. i have been telling dh that for me 1 week with bm, one week with us, is what worked for me when i was a kid. we did try it over a year ago and ss was having a hard time adjusting, but i worry that with all the back and forth it will effect school and cause too much interaction with bm and dh...ie, ss forgot book or project, etc.....i think we should start getting in the swing of things now....
what are schedules that work for you?!
