Let’s talk peaceful parenting, or better yet, peaceful coparenting. I have been learning that letting stuff go, not getting worked up over the little stuff their dad does has not only created more peace for my children, but also for myself. This handsome young man graduated elementary school yesterday... I officially have a middle schooler 😭
His father got him ready for school... and my kiddo was the only one not dressed up for their graduation ceremony. He wore bright orange and sweat pants.... I was so upset when I saw him... I felt like I had been gipped out of my own exciting day of my baby graduating because his father was too dumb to know that he needed to dress up... I didn’t say anything to my ex as he sat next to me during the ceremony, and then afterwards when my son came up and hugged me and was so proud of himself... I realized *I* was being petty and selfish. My son was proud and happy, and that was ALL he needed from me at that moment too. As I took a few breath and let it go, I was able to laugh at something his dad said and enjoy our cupcakes together, which made my son happy, and it made me happy too!
We have to learn when to let go of the petty BS and just let ourselves enjoy life. By holding onto the resentment and anger, we are hurting our children, and also ourselves.
But you guys... I have a MIDDLE SCHOOLER!! How is this even possible 😭😭😂 #ladyofdivorce #risingabove #tooYoungForThis
