Divorce For Dummies
Mr. Divorce Me Not
My ex-wife and I have a pretty good relationship. We both think it is important for us to get along for our son's sake. Even he thinks he is lucky that his divorced parents get along. Yesterday, I spent the day with my ex and my son. He said to me, "At least you get along." I know he talks to the other 10 year olds about his parents divorce.
At least I hope he does. I know many of his friends' parents are divorced. I know several people who are divorced that don't get along at all. My girlfriend's sister's and her ex don't get along at all. Little Miles (my son) plays with them all the time. My girlfriend's sister and her ex are always calling social services on each other and when they see each other they scream at each other. They must not be over each other.
However, me and my ex get along. I hit on her every once in a while just to keep it lively. Mostly we relate as true good friends do on an intellectual level. This intellecual connection is why I married her and stayed married to her for 7 years. She is a good person and I'm happy to have her as my baby's mama.
Yesterday. we worked on a project for school for Little Miles. It was about the debate over evolution. We looked up primary and secondary sources and he made a big poster about it. It was a good project. I worry that my ex puts too much parental help into his projects, but the teachers don't seem to mind and Little Miles gets good grades, so I'm happy she can help, considering the alternative.
Another worry I have is that, my ex puts too much pressure on him.
After going to the library (where I checked out "Leadership for Dummies") and brainstorming and writings for about five hours, Little Miles got a headache. He had been getting these headaches for a while. His pediatrician prescribed for him an anti-depressant that works on these juvenile headaches. I am a little wary about Miles taking antidepressants at such a young age, but if it helps the headaches then why not?
I went home at about 6:30. It was a fun and successful day with my family.
