See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Any other moms here have a great relationship with there ex (baby daddy) and are roommates? I know I'm going to have some haters on the subject but it's working for us. Has been for about 8 months now. We live separate lives but still share in all responsibilities with our son. I work days and he works nights (he's a cop). He takes our son to preschool in the mornings and I pick him up at night. We pay for everything equally. He can date if he wants and I can date if I want, although I don't care to right now.
We do things as a family sometimes as well. We get along great. We mostly see each other in passing a couple times a week. I live on the top floor of the house which is the master bedroom, bathroom and sitting area. He has his own bedroom and bathroom as well. Our son has his own room. We rarely fought when we were together but the romance died. I don't feel romantically connected to him and he feels the same. That could change someday but right now, we are happy being apart and making sure our son is happy and healthy. It's important to us that he never feels like he has to chose between us. We both had divorced parents who fought over us when we were young so we know what it's like to have selfish parents.
We were never married and we work together on everything when it comes to our son. We're both mature and responsible. We have the same views and feelings when it comes to pretty much everything when it comes to our son. I know it's rare to be in a situation like this since I hear so many horror stories of exes being crazy and causing drama affecting the children. I feel lucky that I have it so good and that my son can have both of his parents equally with no fighting or negativity.
Can anyone else here relate? Anyone have great relationships with their baby daddy? I'd like to hear positive experiences from single moms since I always seem to hear negative.
