My ex and I separated 2 years ago,and I moved 3 hours away with our son to be in a community that includes my mother and sister. Six months after splitting up, I met and fell in love with Mr Fabulous, who loves me and my kid and we have decided to build a home here. My ex has gone ballistic, threatening and using guilt to get me to change my mind and move back so he has more access to our son. For various reasons, moving back isn't an option for us.
I am trying to work out an arrangement where ex can have our now 5 year old with him more often/longer, while still allowing for things like weekend birthday parties, sports teams, sleepovers etc. DS will stay living with me and homeschooling is not an option for us at this point. Anyone have any creative ideas on how we could make this work? I figure adapting ex's life to the school calendar is a good start, but thought the creative folks here at MDC might have a solution!
thanks for any input. I'm having a hard time thinking outside the box on this one!
