I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with our pending divorce worried about afterschool and before school care and all of that. How did you manage?

I left him for another man who was more than willing to take us on to get us away. My ex was abusive. I have three kids, btw.

My best friend did it. I couldn't believe her bravery. I was by her side through it all, but to tell you the truth she didn't really even need to lean on anyone too much. She was very independent, and her kids really respected that.

Just make sure all of your tasks are done the night before, that way you can just get up and go in the mornings. Crock pots are great to have dinner ready after you get home. Kids tend to love before/after care because they can hang out with their friends, and get help on homework, etc.

I have afterschool and before school here too, I want to leave this area I live in and move to another part of the city. I am wondering how that will work. I'm sure they have afterschool where ever I go.
