Just need to vent!! Tonight my 8 year old daughter will meet my former husband's new girlfriend. We've been divorced since June of this year, separated since 2010. For the most part, we've been 'model co-parents' and though our daughter does well in school, behavior wise, etc. she still harbors very deep emotions over wanting us back together and developed nervous tummy issues in the beginning. I've witnessed this too many times to name, have held her when she's cried or begged me to get my feelings back for her Daddy (she doesn't know to this day it was his decision). She is nervous about meeting this woman and I know the road ahead will be full of questions for me, the one she confides her emotions to, his attitude about it all is she is just fine with it...complacent, apathetic. Are there any Moms out there who've been through this & have any great words of wisdom p l e a s e?
