This article was sent to me today. To say I was shocked is an understatement, not because of the story, well, OK, a little bit because of the story, but mostly because of the author.

If you think you've ruined your kids' holidays by being divorced, here's another perspective.

Oh--and the author is my youngest daughter. Sorry to brag, but I could not be more proud.

NICE! You are right to be proud. Level headed DD you got there, with a good spirit and a talent for writing.

Thanks, caregiver. I think what makes me the most happy is that she's telling it exactly like it is. And it's ok.

What a smart, funny, down-to-earth girl, meanie. Loved it.

What NIK said.

Thanks NIK, tesla and pass. With all the worrying we do as parents of kids who are dealing with divorce--it's a relief to know that things can turn out ok after all.

This is awesome!

And ya know what? The last time we were at our family counselor he told me pretty much the same thing. I should not hold any guilt or worry about my kids & the holidays. They will be getting two celebrations of every holiday & special occasion from now on. It's a much better deal than originally thought! Good to read your DD's words confirming this idea!

There are no lies, brave faces, or illusions. The charade we put on for so many years before my parents realized they werenít happy together is done, and now we have something thatís real and so much better to come home to. Seeing both of my parents in their new lives is the exact holiday miracle I needed, and itís what saved my familyÖboth families.

What a smart young woman! You did something right, Meanie!

NIK--it's for REAL!! These are the footed jammies with the flap in back!

Thanks better4me! I sure hope I did!
