I have no divorced parents. Only friends with divorced parents. And just by observation, none of them celebrate the holidays with both parents at one of the parents' homes. They visit seperately. The only times the parents are in same location is if my friend has a gatherng at his own home. The parents do not have any kind of bad relationship. They simply did not socialze with each other. Is that not the norm? Divorced folks going their seperate ways and the kids makng time for them seperately?

I keep thinking this must have been or is an issue with him b/c he seems sensitive about it. Heh. But then again, I'm dense so maybe I just don't get it.:D

I'd say that was the norm. The only time I saw this done differently is when the parents are back together but haven't bothered to actually get married again.

I love your ability to remain dense.
Little words.
the kids have only so many hours, so when the visit mommy, mommy gets all of them except for the few they manage to go and spend with daddy.
BUT
when daddy has the kids, their time is split between both mommy and daddy because MOMMY IS THERE HORNING IN ON HIS CHRISTMAS WITH THE KIDS.
Seeing this yet? I really cant dumb it down any further, so if you still need an explanation I suggest you talk to edog.

I am asking for your help b/c I am so dense. Please show me where mommy is there horning in on his Christmas with the kids?

From the letter:
My parents have been divorced for nearly 20 years. They have remained good friends and talk often. My mom has a prtner, "Henry," and has been with him for many years. My dad is single.

During the holidays, my mom wants us to spend every other year with her and every other year with my dad. She says that it makes Henry uncomfortable to be around my dad.

Don't see where mom is expecting to go over the father's house.

The only time I am ever around the X is at the request of my daughter.
We alternate thanksgiving/christmas visitations.

Here miss dense.
not from the letter, but from post #32 by Kuuipo, whom I was having the discussion with before you barged in....

Mom is asking them to come over without Dad once every other year. We don't know what Mom does on the off years, but it's possible that she comes to Dad's house without Henry. I still think it's a reasonable request to accomodate their mom once ever other year.

So, before you try to call me stupid, maybe you should just get your facts straight, and reading comprehension up to speed. You leapt into this without knowing what you were insulting me about.

I will now accept your apology.

I'm going to apologize to someone who calls me dense b/c I am working off the letter and you are working off someone else's reply?

Um, no.

It shoudl be the case of you saying:-- Oh, I thought you were talking about Kuuippo's reply and not the letter. I was out of line calling you dense.
