Holiday phone calls
We celebrated our Thanksgiving with SS7 last Sunday because he will be at his mom's for the real day this year. I personally don't think it is necessary for us to call him tomorrow and talk to him considering we already celebrated our holiday together. However, his BM would do it if the places were swapped.
In the past, for Christmas, she will have him call us right after he opens presents and tell us what he got. I honestly don't care? I understand he might be excited to call and talk to us but we will see him in less than 24 hours, why can't it wait? We have also had him call her because I guess we were following her lead.. but I don't know if it is necessary.
This year Christmas falls on her week but it is our holiday. So we will only get him for a 24 hour period and she will have already celebrated her "Christmas morning" with him the day before. Is it really necessary for him to call her after he opens gifts when he is going to see her later that night? Sometimes I just really want to enjoy a day without hearing her voice/name in my house. Plus, I am kind of a Christmas hater at times and I feel like him calling just to talk about presents defines the holiday to be just about presents and it drives me crazy.
How do you guys handle things like this, or what do you think is appropriate? I really wish I didn't even worry about crap like this and could get over one little phone call.. but damn me, I can't.
