After giving it some thought, I decided to flex a little and try to be compassionate about our sonís birthday. I hope this was the right thing to do for S2, and maybe take the wind from STBXHís sails by showing Iím not an ogre.

I havenít addressed the rest of the email, but this part was time-sensitive as it related to the coming weekend. I do not plan to negotiate further regarding permanent changes to the parenting plan, as I donít believe itís in S2ís best interest.


S2 and I already have plans this Saturday. I am happy for you to pick him up at 5:30pm once we get home.

I'm sure S2 will have a wonderful time celebrating his birthday with you on Saturday night and Sunday at MILís place.

Dropoff as normal 5pm Sunday.
