I'm sort of a lurker here...this is such a helpful site! My BH and I are doing well. My question is about explaining to other people the absence of the OM. I babysit some children in the summer, OM is my neighbor and the kids I watch spent most of the summer over at his house. How do I tell these kids that I have NC with him? They are 7 & 8.

I don't think you have to over explain it. Just say that you are going to be spending the time at your house, and not going over to OM's house. If they ask why tell them that this is what you decided, or this is the way it is now. And then have some fun things ready for them at your house. They'll get distracted easily. And they're kids, you really don't have to give a 7 & 8 year old a full explanation. You're the babysitter, you stay at your house. That's all they need to know.
Take up your space (and do it well).
