No you’re not being selfish.

An every other weekend contact schedule is fair to both parents and the child as it gives you all opportunity to have quality down time together, as opposed to manic pre and after school manic contact.

It is unfortunate that his schedule has changed or he has changed it, but that shouldn’t negatively impact on you by default because he is now missing out.

I would explain the above and state that your child remains available for midweek contact if he wishes to facilitate it, but otherwise the weekend contact remains as it has always been – an every other weekend basis.
