While reading bed time stories to DD, aged 7, she interrupts me with an awkward question for me.
She asked if I ahd a dad. It really took me by surprise and I wasn't sure how to answer it.
At first, I was going to try to fluff it up, but I felt that I was just over explaining. So I just told her that, I did, but he left when I was a baby.
she then asked why. and I just explained that he didn't want to be a dad anymore and then reassured that her dad wouldn't do that.
it was really awkward for me. I didn't know how to answer it and I hope I answered correctly :(
