So usually the whole family go to my parents house. I’m no longer with my ex but the kids are still with him. I live at my parents.
So do I go round to where the kids and obviously my ex is and do a Christmas day there. One of children has said they are going round to my parents. My children don’t want to leave their dad on his own Christmas day so won’t go over to my mums. I want to be with my children but that will mean doing a Christmas day for my ex too. He will be sat there with a miserable face and moaning all day. The thought of Christmas without the kids though is too much.
How about doing Xmas dinner on Boxing Day with the kids at your parents without your ex. That way he can have them Christmas Day and you can have them all day Boxing Day so they get two christmasses, you can always say they are welcome on Christmas Day if they want to pop round. Don’t involve your ex as he will just ruin things. You could always say next year it’s your turn for the kids of Xmas day? Is there a court order in place for access? It would be good to have something legally binding x
