DD6 is having a hard time with the separation. She has been having meltdowns for the past few Sunday nights. She has been saying things like "What if Dad finds a new family and does not love his first family anymore", "Will dad love me when he gets a new family or will he forget about me"......It breaks my heart and I have tried to reassure her that we both love her very much and she will always come first in our lives.
When this happened last Sunday, WH accused me of putting these thoughts in her head b/c she is always happy when he drops her off at the house-- Of course, she is...he is Disney Dad now....IDIOT!!
I know she will adjust but it is so hard to watch her bawl her eyes out when we did not want this-- he is the one who left b/c he wants to find "happiness and peace"....we both do not come from divorced families so he has no idea how this will impact her.
