Ok. So here is the deal...
My husband asked my daughter to go through my purse t0 find a pink. Soe when she was searching through my purse, she found found cigarettes! I do NOT smoke on a regular basis and actually it has been about 8 months.
Whenever I have a few drinks I have a cigarette. Terrible habit from college, I guess. I am 8 months pregnant and very into health and fitness so quite unusual that they would find anything like this in my purse.
My husband is sooooooooooooooooo pissed, but he does know that I periodically smoke when I drink, but pissed they were in my purse and said that YOU HAVE TO HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH YOUR DAUGHTER ABOUT THIS.
I am struggling because I am such a failure as a parent and my husband is one of those guys that NOT one family member has been divorced, went to college, got his masters in a yr and a half, etc. He always makes me feel so bad about myself if I mess anything up because he would never possibly do anything like that! He has smoked cigars when drinking, but guess he justifies that differently.
Sorry for the rambling! Can you please just help me with the conversation with my 11 year old. Her and I are VERY close and do everything together. :( I know I messed up and this is a great time to talk her so I appreciate all advice!
You ladies are saviors!
