    It's great that he wants to be there also, could be come over early in the morning rather than staying the night before?

    Could he and your sister be nice to each other for that morning for present opening? When my parents seperated they still did the breakfast and presents in the monring even though they could barely stand to look at each other any other time.

    I too would suggest that they just put their differences aside for the sake of the children on Xmas morning. Surely they can do that?

    I'm sure your kids would rather have their dad there than their aunty, so she needs to play nice for their sake. Have you spoken to her?

    It's not about just her playing nice I know she would if that was to happen. My ex would not come there if my sister was there. He would cause a massive drama because he doesn't like when things go his way! Hence the reason I left. He's controlling.

    The kids dad usually got here early (6am) Christmas morning, I buy my things and he buys his. He would leave around. Lunch when we head to my aunties.

    Not sure what's going to happen now though. After what happened on my sons birthday I want to separate everything so he does his things with the kids at his house and I do mine with them here.

    We alternate Christmas mornings so one year my husbands kids are here with our children and the other year they come after lunch.
