I know there have been many discussions about schedules on this board, but I'm looking specifically for schedule ideas when the two parents live about 40 minutes apart. Anyone here in that situation?
Right now SO keeps an apartment in the city where his ex lives, but that isn't financially feasible anymore so he will be living full-time with me in a town about 40 minutes away. He has his kids every other weekend and either one or two days during the week. Now that he won't have that apartment anymore, his ex is saying that having the kids during the week will be a "hardship" on them and wants to change the schedule to only every other weekend. It looks like things are going to court no matter what, but I'm trying to encourage him not to think about what's "fair" for him (50/50 split), and more about what is easier and more stable/comfortable for the kids.
Anyway, I thought you ladies might be able to share some of the schedules you work with, to get the creative juices flowing here. Thanks for your help!
