While getting ready for bed the other night, my lovely munchkin asked, “Mommy, do you still love Daddy?” I immediately froze and in my mind, I began to instinctively spew out a few answers: -Awe hell mother nukkin NO! -Please don’t make me gag. -I don’t think dad even likes girls hunny. -Its not that I don’t love him as much as I wish he were no longer on the planet. -I love your dad as much as Posh Spice likes food. Then I thought: -Is she still not over the break up? -Did he put her up to this? -Is he blaming me still for the breakup? I sorted myself out quickly as I tried to figure out what to say. And you know what I did… I put her in my lap and said, “All of the love that I had for your dad, well I took all of it and gave it to you.” Now THAT was a home run for mom! Then the kid told me I needed to go on some Christian online dating site because she wanted another sibling. Good Grief! #modelmombehavior
