Since she moved (again), she lives over an hour away. Pick up time is 7 pm. They get home at 8:15 sometimes later. We have to get them in bed by 8:30 because they get up at 7 for school. Plus it takes them 30-60 minutes each night to wind down, so any delay in bed time is a delay in them going to sleep. And mornings are AWFUL if they don't get enough sleep.

So tonight they got home at 8:20, and had to brush their teeth and go to bed. No time to chat about their weekend, no time to play with their brothers. It sucks. We tried to get her to agree to a 6:00 pick up and give her an extra hour on Friday, but she said no, or didn't respond.

I guess she doesn't care if their Sunday/Monday are difficult.

Add that in when you go to court. You aren't asking for something and giving nothing back, and what you're asking for is in their best interest.

Ugh, it's so not worth another fight with her, though. I mean, they are getting older and bedtime will be later, eventually.

I feel you on the rough mornings. My kids don't go visit their dad, but if for any reason they are up later than usual, it's a nightmare in the morning. It sucks that you are willing to compromise but she is not. Sorry Rachel

It's too bad that she doesn't have their best interests in mind.

Obnoxious!

Rachel, I always feel extra frustrated by posts like this from you because we faced the exact OPPOSITE issue - we wanted to drop my dsc back off at 6:00 pm on Sundays (my older dsc start school at 7:20 or something crazy like that - they START then so they're on the bus by 6:30-6:45) and bm fought us tooth and nail to not have to be home at 6:00 (she wouldn't agree to 6:30 pm either - 7 or later). They take over an hour to wind down at night. She didn't care so we ended up sitting in her drive way every Sunday with upset kids and no way to find out when she was planning on rolling up.

That sucks!

We just changed our pickup time a few weeks ago. Was 7pm now it's 6pm. We both agreed that we needed more time to wind down with O on Sunday. With her he goes to bed at 8:30. With us, its more like 9-9:15. (He gets up earlier with her.) So we didnt get any wind down time.

It really is in their best interest to be able to relax a bit on Sunday before having to go to bed. :/

So not surprised that she doesn't care. Kids need time to decompress.
