"Better not give in to it. It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.”
So DS8 came home from his weekend with STBXH and wanted to watch a movie with me in my room. Fine. He puts the movie in and its the original "Parent Trap." Then he starts asking me what a parent trap is. How do you build one. Is it a real trap or not. I ended up telling him to choose another movie, that one makes me sad.
So tonight I had a heart to heart with him, explaining the Mommy and Daddy are NOT getting back together. Parent traps do not work in real life. I said, "When people get married they make promises to each other. Daddy broke his promises to me, and it really hurt my feelings." Then DS8 wants to know what promises. I was caught off guard so I just kinda glossed over it and reiterated that we are not getting back together.
WTH. I used to love the original "Parent Trap". Now I'll probably never watch it again. Not because of the divorce issue, but because of my DS's heartbreak. FTG for getting us into this situation!!
