I just returned from a birthday party for one of my daughter's school friends. she started at preschool at the same time that my marriage was ending this summer and i don't really know too many of the families. everyone assumes that my stbx is living with us. one mentioned "my husband". i didn't feel like mentioning "oh, we are no longer living together," as it just didn't seem like appropriate birthday party/i hardly know you talk. i am socially awkward at the best of times, so i am wondering how other parents to bring this up--if they do? it seems like a bit of a buzz kill. . .. thanks.
