DH and I have been married 2ish years, together a year longer. This is the first Christmas that we've had SD on any of the "Christmas" days (ie: 24, 25, 26). Usually we get her sometime around the 28-29. It's been a while since I've posted, so I'll just state for the record that there is no CO.
In the past, I was very vocal about DH's rights as a father, and I pointed out several times that he should be able to have her for Christmas. He generally doesn't want to rock the boat though, so goes with what BM decides. Whatever. I'm not going to fight about it. I have bigger fish to fry.
Anyway, we have her until tomorrow evening! So excited :) We are going to be 1/2 hour away from BM's house, and she agreed that we could have her until after dinner. She even agreed to pick her up! This is a miracle because DH does ALL of the driving, and we live 2 hours away without the snow. It took DH 3 hours to pick up SD yesterday because the roads were crap. Fast forward to now. BM asks where we're going for dinner tomorrow. DH says that it's with my family. Now, she wants to pick SD up before dinner. They went around and around for a bit, but nothing got resolved. At this point, I feel like we should text BM with the address 1/2 hour before dinner is over. We won't, but that's what I feel like doing (so please don't flame me for that fleeting thought).
There's really no question/advice seeking. I just felt the need to vent a little.
