Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Divorce and Dating. 8 year old perspective

I had a conversation with my (newly turned) 8 year old daughter, about the possibility of dating.

Not her.

Her Father and I have been apart for more than 3 years.

I approached it like this...

Me: How would you feel if I started dating?

...:and this is what happened...

Her: I would feel hurt if you didn't tell me.

Me:  How about if I promise to tell you if he is worthy of YOUR company?

Her: Mom.  If you like a boy, and he doesn't like you, he is stupid.  If he does like you, he should get on his knees and be thankful, that a woman as great as you likes him.  You are Mome. and deserve for someone to love you.  I broke up with "K" today, but it's okay because "D" is my new boyfriend.  You should have that too.

How do you argue with that?

I have a champion in my corner.

Not sure I'm deserving.
