This is our first FD since the separation. I used to make a nice dinner, a cake with the kids, and had them make cards. Should I get them to make him cards? I have no desire to celebrate FD with him but I wouldn't want to hurt them in any way or confuse them. Do we, as the mothers, hold any responsibility in the celebration of this holiday for the sake of our kids? What do you all do?

I have my settings on FB so that only friends can see photos (or anything else). My mother is freaking out because I have family photos of her on there.

I know you already changed your...

Quote: Originally Posted by MissMaegie'sMama I am right there with you on changing your name after your divorce, but unless your children come to the decision to change their last name on their own accord, I think that it would probably be best for them to keep the last name they have currently.
