In fact, divorce is full of first-time moments. I just waved my 5-yr-old goodbye for the first time. He will be staying with Dad for 3 nights. This is going to be our new weekly routine. I’ve often gone away to write, and Dad has often gone away for work. People say “so you’re used to it, right?”
No. I am not.
When Dad came in (“should I use the key or ring the doorbell?”), our 5-yr-old once again showed him his new bunkbed. He jumped up and down and excitedly said, “Hey dad! If mum goes out you can come babysit! And then you can climb up on the top bunk to tell me a bedtime story. Cool!”
