DS still plans to do the holidays with his dad's family.

I'm sorry, snafu. I'm sure you'll miss him. But, you know early enough that you can make some plans to cheer yourself up.

Re: "child" custody & "adult" child

One of my friends volunteers for a local homeless shelter which feeds people on Thanksgiving on her "off" years (when her kids go to their spouses' families). I plan on doing that as soon as my kids have somewhere else to be.

Re: "child" custody & "adult" child

I should probably start looking into things now - after I find out what the plan is with DH's family (and my DM)


One thing I've been thinking of is doing 2 Thanksgivings Canada's and the US's.

Why? So you can have a holiday with DS?

Re: "child" custody & "adult" child

...thanks Kaykay .... your comment made me realize how silly that would be at this time

but in the future - depending on the "kids" having families it might be a good idea (I don't want them to feel that they have to do the "4 Christmases" thing)

Re: "child" custody & "adult" child

What would you do to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving? What I mean is - would you have DH's family over etc. just like American Thanksgiving?

I celebrate Bastille Day with my kids, but it was a silly thing we did out of boredom one summer that everyone thought was funny. Now it's just an excuse to eat baguettes and drink French 75's.
