My daughter is now at the age where she can both remember a time when her dad and I were together and is old enough to ask questions about why we are not .
Its very hard to explain to a 3yr old the ins and outs of love. Many single mothers mourn the lose of their family units, and not so much the ex. So there have been times where I try to find the words to let her know we both love her the very as when we were a family even though mommy and daddy don't live together anymore , but I mostly end up crying in front of her.
I feel so guilty bc the topic of losing my family still pulls at my heartstrings, no matter how much of a brave face I put on. But my daughter deserves an answer without MY emotions getting all tangled up in it. Any suggestions to make the topic more light for me ?
