Secondly,my ex and I gave begun to discuss our custody agreement. We currently have 50/50 every other week - not court ordered - but we both agree that when starting school DD will need more consistency and so we intend to modify it so she will live primarily with me. She has said herself the back and forth is confusing so this isn't misguided.
Finally, while he will NOT be living with us, DD will be meeting the guy I'm dating and have to adjust to the knowledge her dad and I aren't getting back together (we are still really good friends).
Finally, she will be starting kindergarten in addition to the other things. School will be the first transition and the others will be more gradual. I've been trying to think how I would act, professionally, if someone asked me about all this change for their child. But its tricky... particularly the move and custody. Any advice moms? Anyone else have a child who went through a lot of change at once? I would really appreciate it!
