WW- Our "Brady Bunch"

It's time for Angie's (at Seven Clown Circus) Wordful Wednesday.... You know, I am so thankful that I "met" all you cool, fun people out there. This is such a nice "escape/relief" to come and chat with you all.... Especially after feeling the way I've been feeling lately!! I really just need to get something off my chest:
I feel like I am at my breaking point.... without going into too much personal detail, I just want to say that I just can't-take-it-anymore!! And sometimes I feel like I don't even want to deal with it anymore...I feel out of control with some things and even a bit of a dark cloud haning around-- which I hate because I usually am (have always been) a very positive person...I am a glass is full person even on a bad day. I may worry at times...ok, I worry all of the time...actually I worry about anything that can be worried about...but even as a worry wart, I always try to stay positive. But lately, I feel like that edge is falling off.... How have I lost that?? Where has it gone?? and Why can't things just be better.... happy? Oh well, I guess I will just keep marching on.... and I do appreciate all of you being there to listen when I am having these moments, days, weeks whatever.... and I do hope that I can see the light soon!!
Anyway, onto my Wordful Wednesday..... This is our "Brady Bunch"...
This is my boys and their half siblings........ and half siblings are: Angie (obviously), who is their half-sister from Joe and I; and then their two half-brothers from My ex and his S.O. This picture was taken on Monday night when I went to pick the boys up and we just stayed for dinner and playing. I am really thankful that we can have a good relationship/friendship in spite of the divorce. Sure we (my ex and I) have had our moments...arguments; but what divorced family doesn't... (actually my mom and dad didn't) For the most part, though, we have good, fun time when we are together. And I think it is very healthy for the kids to see that. I always hoped that my ex and I could have a "divorced relationship" like my parents did..... as we did everything together while I was growing up...we celebrated every birthday, holiday, party, dinners, everything together....and enjoyed every minute of it!!
Me and D (the S.O.)... and I am holding their youngest son-- isn't he cute??
D and I have actually started to be really good friends... I often wonder what my ex thinks about that... I wonder if he thinks or worried that we will share "stories"... he-he... I guess he'll never know!!
Have a great day....

That's so great that y'all are so friendly towards one another... I think that's really important to the kids too! You look C.U.T.E. in that picture, lady! You work it, girl!

Looks like they are all getting along, but do they get along in real life like the brady bunch?

What a cute bunch you have. I think it's fantastic that you have such a friendly relationship with the ex. It makes it so much easier on the kids.

I think it is wonderful that you have a fabulous relationship with your ex and the SO - imagine how horrible life would be for you and your children if the other way.

Take a few minutes - look in the mirror - breathe - just breathe - in and out - smile at yourself - brush out your hair - put on some red lipstick - and breathe again - there's nothing too big to get in the way then!

That's great that you want a good relationship with your EX. It's so much better for the little ones that way as yu already know from your experience with your parents.

I'm sorry you're having a rough time right now. Sometimes it just seems that everything goes bad at once doesn't it? Try to stay strong and know that you've got an ear if you ever need to vent.

I hope it gets better soon. That's great you have a good relationship with the ex. It causes so many problems for the kids when you can't.

I think that it's so great that you and your ex's new wife have a friendly relationship!

Sending you big hugs.....

Hugs and lovin' coming your way! Your family is adorable. Just know I am thinking of you..by the way the edge can be a thrill as long as you don't forget your parachute ;)Sanity is overrated!!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

I envy you that good relationship with your kids' dad and his SO. I have the opposite here, a terrible relationship with my ex & his wife. I know that I tried my best, and that's all I can do. I think it's so good for your kids to see you all getting along and being mature! Kudos to you all.
