Why don’t you propose a regular schedule that seems reasonable to you. Send it to him for agreement and say unless he wants to make any adjustments, this will be the schedule going forward. Your son needs a settled routine.  If he prefers text, ok, say all communications will be by text in future except emergencies.

Provide access to your son on those days. If he doesn’t contact you and doesn’t show up that’s his fault. Keep all texts. You can prove you have tried to accommodate him. If he messes you about, don’t respond, just keep confirming the next date in the schedule.

He’s messing you both about.Sorry but  it’s time to play hard ball.
