Re: Child Visitation Issues
Aside from all the huggy smushy "advice" you've been getting, the real answer is (at least for this holiday season), you have the legal obligation to follow the court order. If that means the kid has to go, the kid has to go. If it continues to become an issue, then modify visitation, but it won't get done by Christmas. And no, you don't HAVE to switch times if you don't want to.
If you wanted babies all to yourself, you should have created them by yourself. Until you do that, children have the right to BOTH parents, especially since you found them suitable to procreate with.
