Speaking as a "single" Mom, my son sometimes does not wish to spend time with his father. Since he is a junior in college I believe it's his right to chose. If Jen is hysterical about it she needs to let people know that it's not what she wants to do.

Nancy, the real drama isn't my daughter, it's my sisters and parents. My daughter Jen is OK with splitting the day between her father and her grandparents, and my daughter Becca doesn't have an issue with it.. Jen would have preferred seeing her father on friday, but Becca is working all day Friday, all day Saturday and all day Sunday. It's when she told my sisters what the plan is that all hell broke loose...and when they laid the guilt trip on her, that's when she got hysterical and said she didn't want to go...

Since you and Drew are on reasonable terms I'd go out to dinner in a nice restaraunt-just the two of you and the kids- and tell your family that they have a year to think about more appropriate behavior. On the other hand, I don't have to deal with your family for the next year.

Gah! You're being reasonable, and you're catching all kinds of flak for it. Wishing you good luck and some holiday cheer.
