Hi Robsheffield. I spilt up with my sons father 5yrs ago now…my son is 5, almost 6. Of course at the beginning I felt terribly guilty – but you need to let that go!
children are so so adaptable & resilient, my little boy once cried & said he wanted mommy & daddy to live together so I kindly explained that mommy & daddy are happier not living together – which makes things better for him! I explained families come in all shapes & sizes lol

I told him he was very lucky to have two families!
he is very happy, his life is filled with love, he has fun with me then fun with his dad. I am age  appropriately Truthful with him if ever he asks anything but to be honest he rarely does! It’s just the way it is

your little one will be absolutely fine, as long as you are happy & show him lots of love then he will be happy
