Just wondering how others have dealt with the tough job of letting the kids know about the OW?.... My husband left 4 months ago and I have only now began the "acceptance" part of this...up until now I have kept the OW out of the situationan and just explained to my girls (9 & 4) that "daddy doesn't live here anymore, its his choice and he will always love them"...he has recently been bringing up that he doesn't spend time with the girls because "she is his life now so they will have to meet her" - by the way..."she" is a 19 year old girl who moved in with him 4 days after he left....UGH...anyway...last night I shared with my girls that "daddy lives with a girl he met at work" (to be totally honest I used the bachelor as an example as my oldest had seen a few minutes of the show and kept repeating "wouldn't it suck to be Melissa"...I shared that I kinda feel like Melissa because daddy changed his mind...I explained that it is his choice, not my fault and has nothing to do with them but, that I thought they should know about her so they can go to daddys house if they want to...no secrets. I left it open for questions but...they were both pretty surprised I think...now what?....any advice would be so much appreciated...
