| | Thoughts on introducing kids
Wanted to bounce this off my friends here.
I found out that my X has had the kids around OM. Interestingly, I'm not upset about it at all. I'm completely comfortable with the fact that she has her life now and I have mine. In fact, he really isn't a terrible person other than the fact that he slept with a married woman and left his wife. I imagine he will treat my children like royalty, if nothing else, to impress my X.
I was offended that I found out by one of my kids saying we went to XYZ's house instead of her telling me but that's just how it happened and I can't change that.
So, 2 kids under 5. It is a very significant change in their life.
I've met someone too now and I can see how my X felt it was the right thing to do. I mean, I'm very hesitant and going to be very careful about what I do but I guess what I'm saying is...
I get it. I can see why when you fall in love with someone new you want to take your kids around them.
Who knows if anyone will even read this or have an opinion but I'm just very surprised that I feel the way I do about it. I figured I would go ballistic when OM was anywhere near my babies. But, I'm OK with it.
