He tried

My kids daddy came to see them for the holidays. He was on great behavior. I saw glimpses of the man I use to know. The kids have rarely seen him like that. They were so happy. He listened to them, played with them, laughed at their jokes. It was their best gift of all. Sadly, his visit was one too many days. He was leaving tomorrow and came unglued today. The good news was he fought his demons for a whole week. The bad news was the demons won again.

    1. Thats what worries me “kids know more than we presime about these things” Of course i go into mom mode and tell the kids about life having challenges, overcoming challeges, life not always being perfect. They laugh and moan, not another life lesson.:-) best wishes and happy new year!
