There is one thing about my ex-husband that always makes me conciliatory

He loves his daughters. He always has, right from their birth, and even though I did most of the intensive raising for many of the years, he was always around to make them feel secure and loved in his presence. It made me very happy to see what a great father he was and I never felt bad about leaving my girls in his care. He wants the best for them and that is what I want, too.

I can overlook the nasty comments and the negative attitude – I can accept that he doesn’t like me enough to co-parent equally (although part of me resents the hell out of the fact that he sees women as lesser than equal).

He was a lousy husband but a great father. It makes me feel better to think that he will always be there for them.

About quirkycharm

I like to think that I have a certain quirky charm but I am probably being optimistic. Acquired taste, perhaps, which many don't acquire. This is about my fifth blog out there. My hosting companies kept going out of business or my IT exhusband kept hacking into them and I would move again. I don't do twitter, I barely do facebook, I don't try and 'monetize' my blog. I love my husband, my grown children and my job and this particular incarnation of oversharing my life comes at a time when I am the most content that I have ever been. I write always, sporadically during the good stuff and exhaustingly during the bad.
