Just another 30-something. Two kids. One ex-husband. A glass of red wine. The usual.
I hav been legally divorced for a over a year now. I have two small kids too. It is hard and I was told the same too. It is true but it doesn't make it easier. It makes you know you are doing a food job.
Thanks! Yeah, I guess all I can hope for is that it's harder on me than on the kids. I don't want this to be the definition of their childhood.
It won't be unless you make it. It's easy to put our fears onto them.
Right. I think I do a really good job of sheltering them from any of that. Despite transitions sometimes (for the 4 year old), they seem fine. I mean, they're happy, dancing, singing little girls. That can't be bad, right? :)
Right and they will know no different. Kids are resilient. I had the same fears and sometimes still do but my kids are only 3 and 5 and I've been raising them virtually on my own for two years. Dad sees them but on a limited basis...no overnights for now.I know it's hard but just take care of yourself and they will flourish!
Thank you for your helpful words! And thanks for commenting. I don't get much feedback on this blog, and anything helps.
