Why do I have to share?

I let my 19mos daugher on a trip with her to dad to a family reuinion in Maryland (20 freakin hrs away!) & when he arrived, his mom asked if he had let me know that they made it safe & sound. His response was "No & I'm not gonna cuz it's none of her business what I do with Kaitlyn." We have joint custody so I felt like I had to let her go but now I'm thinking if he can't be respectful of me & keeping me up on things like that I'm not gonna agree to let him take on trips like that anymore. Am I wrong?

I don't think it will help the situation at all. Next time he takes her on a trip just ask him, "Will you call me and let me know you both made it okay?" and if he does he does and if not then let it go. When *you* take her on trips make sure to call him and let him know you both made it okay. He will get the point and you will avoid starting a fight that will only make him want to give you less information.
