Dealing with divorce and finding that parenting balance

I’ve been very honest about my divorce and what’s going on.  There are some things that I won’t talk about because I don’t want my kids to know the truth about what really happened. 

I have nothing to hide but it’s not my story to tell. These are grownup issues and the kids  don’t need to deal with grownup issues. 


It’s no secret that the boy’s Mom has been largely absent from their lives, aside from scheduled visits. 

There are reasons for that far beyond my control and whether I agree or not, it’s my job to make it work.

That being said, the boy’s Mom is wanting to become more involved lately.

I have mixed feelings about this.  On one hand, it’s a positive step in the right direction but on the other hand, it’s been a really, really long time since she’s been involved in some of these things. 

She hasn’t been to a school meeting in almost 2 years but she wants to be part of the process again. 

This will begin today, with Elliott’s emergency IEP meeting.  While she’s unable to physically be present, I’ve offered to conference her in and that’s what we’re going to do.

Again, this is positive but at the same time, I’m unsure of how this is going to go. 

I’m used to doing everything on my own and I’ve grown quite adept at doing that.  This sorta throws me off a bit. 

This is one of the reasons I’m nervous about this meeting at the school. 

I’m choosing to see this as just part of the journey and hopefully, it’s a positive step in the right direction.

I totally support positive steps in the right direction and I’ve foolish not to. 

I’m going into this with the cautiously optimistic approach.  😐
