Thanksgiving for the kids.

I've decided i'm having my own Thanksgiving this year. For those of you who have read my blog you will know that this is something that has been weighing on my mind heavily.

I decided I cannot go with my ex to his mothers as we do every year because it may send the wrong signal to my kids. I do not want them to get any false hopes. Plus an evening with his family just does not sound appealing to me.

I am not going to my parents home because as you know the problems I have had with m mother. Plus they are going to California to my grandmothers and I really don't want to go there.

I'm going to share the day with my ex. I will have the kids for half of the day and he will have them the other half. If he chooses and doesn't blow them off as is the case normally.

I figure this way he can take them to his moms if he wants to so she can still see them and I don't have to go. And I also don't have to lose time with them on this holiday.

We'll see how it all works out now wont we?!!

The half and half split is a good way to do it. It is how I did it, and it worked out well for my kids.
