Reply To: Better co-parenting
Thank you all for your advice. For a bit of additional context the breakup was a little over a year ago and it wasn’t pretty. I had no spine with my ex at the time so after I ended it she guilt tripped/begged/reasoned with me to try again and I caved. I had to break up with her three times before it stuck. Currently we’re still living together, as the additional expense of raising a child has rendered us both unable to live separately. However we’ve managed to keep our son and our parenting out of the court system. I suppose I should count my blessings; as frustrating as it gets sometimes we still function as a team. We buy each other things for mothers and fathers day, take trips together, and can still rely on the other for help if things get dicy. I suppose a little conflict isn’t quite so bad amid all that.
Thanks again everyone, the best part of gingerbread is that it helps me get perspective!
