Re: 1,000 positive stepping stones on the path to healing ( 19:09:04 WedOct 29 2003 ) |
Ok, today a positive step we made was to tell our son that we are separating. My husband held our son in his lap, and I told him that daddy was going to live in a new house. I told him it wasn't anything he did, mommy and daddy both love him and will always take care of him. I told him he would still see daddy every other day (this is true) and on some weekends would go and stay with daddy at daddy's house. He said, "Daddy, we can share your house." Of course, then he said, "Daddy, don't go." But his dad was great, he said, "I have to, but I still love you and I'll see you all the time, and we'll have fun together just like we do now." Then my son said, "Mommy, will we get to go to the airport?" I explained that we wouldn't have to, daddy was close enough to get to by car, only 10 minutes away, not far away like grandma and grandpa. And then he said, "can we go to the airport for fun?" And we said, yes, we could still go to the airport for fun (he likes to do this.)
I know it will be harder than this many times when he wants his dad and his dad isn't here, but just the way my husband and I worked together on this gives me hope that we can continue to work together to do what is best for our son. And it's also positive because I really wanted to wimp out, and tell my husband he could stay, because I didn't want to upset our son. But I found the courage. And I am just going to be happy for today that today went so well.

Be yourself - it's so worth it. You are most engaging and attractive when you are yourself!
