Q My ex-husband's girlfriend of less than three months has told our two sons that she is going to have a friend of hers take a picture of the three of them as a present for their dad's birthday. I did not say anything when my son told me, but I came unglued on my ex. Now he won't talk to me, and the photo shoot is next week. What's good ex-etiquette?
