Telling my Kids About Divorce + How we Survived the First Year

One year ago today, the day after my daughter’s third birthday, I sat down with my kids and their Dad and told them that we were getting a divorce. We planned our conversation with them carefully, read as many articles as we could get our hands on and prepared for the most heartbreaking response.

What they actually said wasn’t in any article I read, and I had a hard time wrapping my head around it for a long time. It was a reminder that every single part of a divorce story is unique for everyone who goes through it.
