we were in the unfortunate position a few years back of having a contact book imposed on us. The children''s mother made loud noises about how it was to maintain communications between her and their dad as they couldn''t talk to each other. In reality it was used to make digs at his/our parenting skills; comment on activities and set rules for what she would or wouldn''t allow. In the end we refused to play ball and kept the book, making it clear we would not cooperate with another.
I suspect the only reason you are getting the book and these comments is to back up any argument she might come up with as to why you are ''unsuitable'' and should have further contact stopped. As another poster mentioned, I would pre-empt these comments by including your own. eg. ''was unable to feed x the snacks packed by mum as she showed no inclination to eat them / there was no time left after her bottle''.
I think i''m just going to go ahead and take my niece and nephew along. probably avoid telling my EX just this once but on the next visit after the birthday I might say to her i''m planning on my niece and nephew to meet my daughter. If she kicks up a fuss then at least they would of met her on her birthday and had that good couple of hours. I know it''s all a bit sneaky but want to avoid confrontation atm.
