But for a good reason. There is not much the POS can do or say anymore to bring me to tears, but my children are my Achilles heel, as they are for the rest of you dedicated parents. DS20 was telling me about his new GF via text because he wanted me to know something about her up front (she's a single mother). I have no problem with that and said as much, along with my sage motherly advise not to rush into anything (he just got over a bad breakup). His response is what turned the waterworks on as the conversation veered toward the subject of the POS. DS20 wrote: "Have I told you lately that I love you?And it absolutely kills me what he [POS] did to you. It honestly does, and there are no words I could say to describe my remorse for you and what you are going through!"
My kids are now my life, and that statement made me cry like a baby. They are the only ones who can do that to me...but it is all good and I will turn into a waterfall for them any day!
ETA: Then he sends: "I love you so ever dearly mom and that much will never change. No matter who I'm with or where I am. I'll always be there for you. Always."
Well crap, I am a total blithering hot mess of tears now...
