It all depends on how well you get along.
My exH works out of province three weeks out of the month, so DS lives with me 100% of the time.
Rather than try to stick to our origional agreement which was he got DS every second weekend and access during the week, we just left it wide open for him to do what he wants with DS while he is home. Unless I had something planned I try to keep that week free and open for DS and his dad. He is also entitled to two weeks over the summer should he choose, but for the most part he can't.
He has indicated he wants to take him this march break, which works for me.
He has been good at calling in advance and asking if we had any plans and then letting me know what he wants to do. It has been very successful.
If you are both open to working together to make things work smoothly for your child or children then it can be done. I hope you find what works for you.
