Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

My oldest has a different dad than my younger two. We were married for five years. Divorced 9 years ago. Ds lives with him and we have a great parenting relationship. Well his new wife is in labor with their first, a little girl. A little over a year ago they lost a baby girl at 20 weeks. I am so stoked for them that this little one is full term and healthy and should be here any minute and posted on FB (with her permission) that I was so excited and praying for her. Well three people commented that is was wierd that I was happy my ex was having a baby!! WHY?? I have been with my SO for 8 years, we have two kids. WHY would I care or be mad he is having another kid. UGH People are annoying lol

it's not common for a lot of people to have a good enough relationship with their ex, that they wish them well..especially not the step mommy..

so in a way, it is weird.. but in a good way ;)

Good for you.  I like hearing about these nice adult relationships.  I know several people who have parted amicably and they are so much happier than the few poor souls I know who are entwined in bitter ex relationships that infect everyone around them..

 lol i must be strange then becuase im friends with (one of) my husband ex girl friend who was the first  person he ever had sex with lol. strange?  Yet there is a girl he hung out with while we were split up premarriage that I cant stand an would love to punch lol granted this girl talked mad shit about me not know me so I guess it really depends on the person an how they treat you.

It is weird. But I think all ex-relationships like that are. My brother and his wife used to hang out/play cards with her ex and his new wife. I would never ever hang out with my ex!

She has been a blessing too us. My son has lived with his dad since the split as it was what was best for him and she has loved him as her own, while telling him that she wasn't trying to take my place and making sure he knew I would always be his mom.

Its mature, which is out of the norm and incomprehensible to many, therefore weird.

Awww thanks.

Quoting RLT2:

They're weird! You, however, are awesome and mature! Go You!



No, Thank YOU! It's nice to see people acting like grown ups, once in awhile!

The best thing he ever did was leave me. We were NOT good together and we are so much happier apart, as is our son.
