Is anyone else here in a coparenting situation? I know we aren't traveling now but how do you handle the schedule with a travel job? I'm really beat down right now...

Not about work but need advice about friendship. I’ve an only son (4Y) and our ex-neighbors have an only daughter (3Y). The kids get along great, the dads tolerate each other and I like the mom. After they moved, we visited them a couple of times. We’ve been inviting them over all summer and they’ve been unable to make it. Yesterday we invited them over for dinner, at 4 pm they said they’ll get here at 6 pm and at 5.30 pm they cancelled. I feel like I’m the only one making an effort here.
