When I told NCP that daycare would be closed, I agreed he could have him for 2 or 3 days & to tell me the days he wants. He said he couldn't do that, he would have to tell me the night before (not even 24hrs). When I've agreed to that in the past, he ends up calling at 10-11p and leaves a voicemail saying yes or no. When I ask why he couldn't have called earlier, he makes various excuses that has nothing to do with work. He works 5a - 3p, if at all so I know it's not because work isn't telling him.
The reason the daycare part was put in the order was because NCP's work is so sporadic, the judge decided it was in our son's best interests to make sure he's in a scheduled consistent environment due to his age and NCP's lack of understanding re: children development, etc. That was a good call because when our son is with NCP, there is no schedule. 99% of the time, he comes back overtired and overstimulated from the lack of napping (except in the 45min car drive), to name one issue.
In ending, I'm just frustrated with trying to get him to a give me (and my mom) a little more time to plan.. and he won't even agree to meet me halfway in the AM before work when we meet halfway for every other visit! What's the point? 2 days out of the rest of our son's life that he won't get to see NCP, isn't worth all this, IMO.
