BM Always Late
I realize a few minutes here and there is not a big deal and I should pick and choose my battles. That has been noted.
However, BM is consistently late. Sometimes 15 minutes, sometimes it's 30 minutes. A few times, it's been more than 30 minutes.
SOMETIMES she gives a courtesy call. Most of the times she doesn't.
Their court order had to be changed because of his work schedule, so SHE drops off on Friday and HE brings them home on Sunday evening. There is nothing that says an amount of time that needs to be given as a courtesy as far as punctuality. The only thing I can find is this:
" The time schedule of the children should be observed STRICTLY. Any parent who will be late for parenting time should call the other parent leaving word as to the reason for lateness and the estimated new time."
In the year that I've been witnessing these drop offs, she has only been on time ONCE. And I am not exaggerating.
I've just been documenting each instance and what was said and what was communicated just in case it is needed.
Other than that, we have resorted to texting her Friday afternoon to remind her of the drop off time and to please be mindful of the kids' time with him.
Any other suggestions? Have any of you gone through this? Should we say/do anything else?
Thanks so much!!!
