[quote]Three weeks uninterrupted is not unreasonable, and honestly, will be harder on you than it is on her. You get the same thing. You appear to be acting like he is doing this to "get" you, when in reality, he is doing it to take the child on vacation. Go with it, make your own plans, and all will be fine. [/quote]

First of all, thank you for taking the time to respond. But I have to tell you, I don't feel he has asked for this summer vacation time to "get" me. Nothing in my post indicates that level of paranoia :)

We divorced in 2005. Our dd has never been away from either of us for more than ten days at a time. So yes, three weeks is unreasonable. I am trying to be proactive and work with him. I have reached out to him on our court-ordered communication system and asked if he had any thoughts on how to make this work for both of us. His response four weeks ago was that he would get back to me. Despite two follow-ups from me, he has not responded. And while I do understand that I can do the same thing to him, there are some problems with that. One of the funnier problems is that our dd's summer vacation simply does not last long enough for both parents to take two three-week periods of time. (she only has nine weeks of summer vacation)

Thanks to all for the constructive thoughts...it has given me some good ideas.
