Thanks for th evote of confidence. I am not saying I am a perfect parent, made mistakes of my own, i.e. not filing for divorce, custody, etc... but I have always been there for our boys. And when they ask why mom isnt there, it breaks my heart. I dotn have an explanation. I just tell them mom had some things to work out. I've never had all the right words. I wish I did but I dont. How do you tell kids that their mom pretty much abandoned them without looking like a vengeful person? I dont want them to think bad of their mom, although at times they do. But, I have never said anything cross about their mom to them. Hell, to this day I havent gotten any explanation as to why she took off. It hurts but it hurts more to see my kids suffer.
Very grateful for my two boys.
