We've been divorced now for two years. I am the custodial parent and he is non-custodial. We live approx. 9 hours from each other so when visitation times come around (school breaks and holidays) we meet in the middle. Per the divorce decree, he is to have the kids for all of summer break minus the week after school gets out and the week prior to it starting agin. As was the case last year, he said he couldn't take the kids for the entire summer so I told him to let me know when he wanted them (I try to encourage him to take them as much as possible, the kids love him and want to spend time with him!). So tonight he told our son (not me) that he was going to get them on June 20th. I have plans that entire weekend (for myself, our kids will be staying with my sister for the weekend). These plans have been made and reservations paid for for 3 months. I told him this and said we needed to work something else out but he's dead set on getting his way. I am all for the kids spending time with him but I won't cancel my plans because he decided that was the weekend he wanted to step up and be a dad. Am I being unreasonable?
