My ex want visitation to our son I don't have a problem with her seeing him but she wants every weekend and every holiday. I offered every other weekend and alternating holidays. Will she get what she is asking for or do I have a better option for him.
What you are asking for is the usual order. Absent some facts I can't dream up, she's dreaming.

Every other weekend and 1/2 of all holidays is minimally standard. Every weekend isn't fair to you because then you have no 'off-school' time. You could offer him 3 weekends a month. Or perhaps an extra Saturday, or something in addition to every other weekend that works with both your schedules.
Every other weekend and alternating holidays is a reasonable order that a judge would enter. Every weekend and every holiday is not fair to the other party so it is very unlikely an order requiring this would be entered by any judge in California.
