Last year my husband and I divorced. In an attempt to keep the divorce amicable, I gave him the house, car, and dog without any resistance on my part. I knew our 4 year old daughter would have a difficult time adjusting to her new lifestyle with divorced parents so I braced myself for the inevitable questions. Why don't you live with Papa anymore? Why do I have two homes? Do you not love Papa anymore? She asked all the questions that were expected and I answered the best I could. Despite my efforts to be prepared for any questions she might throw at me, there were two that caught me off guard and still slightly sting to this day. Or2世界播

去年我丈夫和我离婚了。为了保持友好的离婚关系,我毫不犹豫地把房子、车和狗都给了他。我知道我们4岁的女儿很难适应离婚父母的新生活方式,所以我做好了迎接不可避免的问题的准备。你为什么不再和爸爸住在一起了?为什么我有两个家?你不再爱爸爸了吗?她问了所有意料之中的问题,我尽我所能地回答了。尽管我努力为她可能抛给我的任何问题做好准备,但有两个问题让我措手不及,直到今天还有点刺痛我。Or2世界播

In an attempt to keep living costs low, I moved into a one bedroom apartment giving my daughter the bedroom and putting a daybed in the living-room for myself. It's not ideal, but I was in a rush to move out and thought the neighborhood was a good fit for us. Or2世界播

Just a few short weeks after I moved out, my ex-husband moved in his new girlfriend to take on my role. She started cooking, cleaning, and taking care of our daughter as if she had done it for years. We'll call her Stacy for the sake of the story. There was a slight rift between her and I after my daughter came home saying "I love Stacy! Stacy is my new Mom!". Keep in mind, my ex-husband and I had only been split about a month by this time and my emotions were still on the rise. Luckily, as time has passed, I began to become grateful for Stacy's presence since it seems she's raising my daughter more than my ex. Or2世界播

就在我搬出去短短几周后,我的前夫搬来了他的新女友来接替我的角色。她开始做饭、打扫卫生,照顾我们的女儿,就好像她已经做了很多年一样。为了这个故事,我们叫她史黛西。在我女儿回家说“我爱史黛西!史黛西是我的新妈妈!”之后,我和她之间出现了一点裂痕。记住,到这个时候,我和前夫才分手了大约一个月,我的情绪还在上升。幸运的是,随着时间的推移,我开始感激斯泰西的陪伴,因为她似乎比我的前任更能养育我的女儿。Or2世界播
