My husband and I are just starting to talk of separating. Tonight will be his first night not staying at home. My kids think he is just out and will be back later. He will be home before they wake up so they will not know. My real question is how old were your kids when you separated and what did you tell them. If this is going to be permanent we have to tell them something. I have 2 girls. Ages 5 and 2. The oldest is already asking where dad is because he wasn't here for dinner...and its almost bedtime.....
