I think you said your husband was military, check with family services and see what they might be able to offer in the way of help.
yeah, I know. She will be bringing my son and she instists on driving. Its really annoying to me, since Im sure she will get her and not want to drive around bc she hates traffic. It is cheaper for her to drive, since our son will be with her most likely, but its still annoying that she wont take a bus!
