"Where is mum," I asked Lacey, who was pouring milk into both of our bowls."She went to Aunt Dina's house with dad," she replied not looking up. Ever since the divorce with Uncle Jack, Aunt Dina has been feeling very lonely. " she said "I know tonight is your big date with Adrian and you want to ..you know," she said leaving the sentence hanging in mid air.Their two children were aged fourteen and twelve when the marriage ended.Aside from dealing with her emotions from seeing her ex with a new partner, Michelle also had to help her child cope with her feelings."Whatever you say," she said rolling her eyes "now quickly finish your breakfast so we can go shopping." I grinned and then concentrated on my task of finishing my breakfast.Even though Lacey and I were twins we were like fire and water both in our looks and our personality.It actually made my life easier to just let it be and not make a stink over it.
Lacey followed my eyes and saw what I was looking at.As you work on creating the next chapter of your life, as you let yourself enjoy being loved by someone new, the hurt will fade. He actually started dating someone who was another parent at our school and our children are friends.I was a brunette with dark hair like mum while she had blond hair and black eyes like our dad.She was outgoing and into the latest fashion while I was the stay at home and look after the kids' kind of person.It’s only natural to experience some emotions when you see your ex with someone new.
