Another surprise is that V was here—and he didn’t mind that I got roses from another man:
My ex-husband, H.
Of course we have a couple of secret weapons: named Alli and Daniel.
When you have kids together, even if the marriage isn’t forever, the relationship is. And parenting those kids works far better when the parents are partners, not adversaries.
Granted, that’s easier said than done. Still I think more men could take a cue from my ex—to wake up and smell the roses.
Divorced couples share their kids, even if they share nothing else. And Mother’s Day is an opportunity for any father to honor the mother of his children. Doesn’t have to be flowers—a call, a card, an email—might go a long way to heal hurts—most of all in the eyes of the kids. And that’s a gift to be shared by everyone in the family.
