There is probably not anything that can be done before Mother's Day. Even in week-on, week-off arrangements the Mother would usually have possession of the children on Mother's Day (and the Father on Father's Day). Though you probably won;t be able to get anything done in the next week, you should consult with a family law attorney about modifying the schedule to reflect the schedule that the parties have.
Sadly for you, she is correct. If you are the one negotiating with your husband's ex, perhaps that could be the problem. Let your husband try to make a plan with her, maybe even switching weekends or giving up extra time. You CANNOT be the one to do this.
The decree can only be varied from by mutual agreement. Otherwise it needs to be followed or you are in contempt. You may be able to rush into court and get some emergency temporary orders but it will be expensive. I suggest laying it out to her and the expense involved, and offer to give her your father’s day as a trade or other extra weekend or enticement. Then you may wish to modify the orders to reflect the time that you actually have had with the child.
