I don't necessarily agree with the 1/1/1/1/2 schedule, it is a lot of exchanges, maybe a 2/2/3 would be better... less exchanges for the children. It seems there have been a few changes (kids starting school, no longer breastfeeding), while the changes may not be extreme, I don't see why you both couldn't work this out.

He certainly can't take time from you and even requesting PD Days isn't taking time from you as the child is usually in school Fridays. I agree being flexible doesn't mean you have to say yes all the time but I also think you need to consider his request do PD Days because it is not out of the ordinary.

Yes I agree with you. I have offered since all the PD Days are on his weekends I offered to share them. He declined my offer to share them demanding 100%.

My work schedule prevents me from doing a 2/2//3/3 schedule. I work set evenings 2 days a week until after 8pm. This is why we couldn't work this out. He wants to do his schedule and have the kids with a babysitter the one evening a week I work and me to pay 100% for it. Or he will just take them the evening I work so he has 3 days a week and EOW, or 64% threshold aka full support from me.
