The new experience in my life is divorce. It has not been an easy decision but it is the best option for me. We are going to co-parent the kids. Co-parenting is shared custody and time with the kids. The kids stay in the family home and, as co-parents, we alternate staying with them. I get them a week and then he gets them a week. This has been working okay so far. It definitely is an adjustment! I have to plan ahead for everything. I still have to consult him about plans and decisions. It's truly the best option for the kids. It gives them a lot of consistency and the adjustment of having a single parent has been easier for the kids. The adjustment time will take a few months to get used to but I feel pretty good about it right now.
