Question from a BioMom FINAL LETTER--SENT Thanks Cafe Mommies!!!
Final answer--thanks to CM sharp editing staff!
Wanted to say hi and introduce myself, as we may be crossing paths in the near future.
I am sure you'll be getting to know my children shortly. Please know that I believe the children are better off when both parents are happy, grounded and in a loving home and wish you the very best. I'm sure we can all keep this transition as low-drama as possible.
Please know that, although I am aware you began your relationship with E. while we were married, that is water under the bridge. There are many sides to every story, and we each have our own version of things. The marriage had been over in reality for some time, of course.
In my opinion, it would have been in the children's best interest had you two (mostly E.) chosen to manage this whole thing with honestly, integrity and transparency from the start. As you may appreciate, the news of papi moving, then having a girlfriend, then moving in with the girlfriend and guess what-we want you guys to come stay with us starting next week...well that's a lot for a child to take in at once. :)
I trust that you respect the fact that E. and I are the parents of these beautiful children, and as such need to make decisions regarding visitation, child support and discipline, etc. I will similarly trust you to run your home while the children are there, in whatever way you see fit and will not meddle as long as I see no reason for concern.
Again, I will be courteous to you and will expect no less from the children. Please feel free to contact me with regard to the children whenever necessary. I wish you the best in this new chapter in your life.
PS Sure fire way to win over DDs spitfire attitude? Ice cream or a trip to Justice. DS's a breeze. Good luck!
