I usually get and give at least a months notice. My wife's mother lives locally and is always friendly and willing to help. I have no family locally.
No. Our current arrangement is I have Daughter on Mon, Wed, Friday early evening and either Sat or Sunday depending on what other plans we have. I have no idea what changes she wants to make or what she means by formal agreement?
Our Daughter is in a swimming club which means on Wed and Friday I have to take her as my wife does not finish work on time. I would like to try alternate weeks as it would make uniform and washing easier to manage. I don't have any weekly commitments and if I do go to any clubs I always do them every other week to allow for flexibility. We could try this and see how it goes.
