I said in my intro blog that it would be difficult to come up with new posts for this one in addition to what I post on my other blog. Well, maybe I'll just use this one as my "let it all out" outlet.
The thing on my mind today is co-parenting. We are a blended family. I have two kids, my hubby has one, and we are having our first one together in September. I had my first two kids when I was really young, and they have different dads. I was married to one of the dads for 8 years before we separated and then divorced two years later.
Divorce is one of those things that should come with a warning label like cigarettes and alcohol. WARNING: Divorce will be hazardous to your future health. You will fight about the kids, how to parent them, and who is paying or not paying whom what amount of money. You will lose sleep as you ponder the pain your kids are going through because of the poor co-parenting relationship. You may go through murderous rages that while you may never actually act on, you sometimes wish you were that kind of person.
Sometimes my ex acts like a creepy creeperton. I'm sure if you asked his side of the story, he'd have worse things than that to say about me. We each have our own side of the story, that's just how it is.
The thing killing me right now is that I've tried to declare a truce, and he's still out for blood. My daughter is suffering because of it, and there is nothing I can do to change it.
All of you fellow co-parenters out there, I'm sure you feel my pain. Offer up a prayer or a positive thought for me......I'll do the same for you.
