My childs father and I are seperated. He has a new gf who has 2 of her own. Been together since just before xmas. They are all living together and my children have met her too. I havent yet, but my children seem to like her so im happy with that. Anyway, our children have just had 2 weeks half term for Easter in which their Dad took no time off to spend with them. But has just had a week off work to go on holiday with his gf and her 2 children..I told him I wasnt happy that he did this and told him he needs to put his priorities in the correct order. Am I being unreasonable??

No you're certainly not, b.U.. He'll take his gf away and her children, but leave his own like snots. Im confident that that would piss anyone off.
He'd get the length of my tongue, and trust me when I'm angry. My mouth is like a pit full of premenstrual snakes.

I'm surprised the gf doesn't question his moral after ditching his own children like this. YANBU.

Yanbu if he took no time off but yabu if he took the odd day off

Exactly, hej. My dp has no children, but I'd be mortified and embarrassed if he was putting me before his children. I think it would make me question our relationship

YANBU. How sad for your children.

Nope, he took no days off. He was the same when we were married. He even went into work on his paternity leave!

No, you're not being unreasonable but it's very common.

YANBU at all, I know exactly how you feel. My ex has never taken any time off during half term in the 10 years we have been separated. He saves his holidays for himself the selfish bastard. It has pissed me off no end over the years but I can't force him to have the kids. He would never have them for any extra days/nights apart from the one overnight stay on alternate Fridays (4.30pm - 8am) and Saturdays (4.30pm - 11.30am) and I suspect he only agrees to that as it made his maintenance payments a little lower.
