However, if our kidlet calls me 2 days in advance of her wedding to share the same, Ill be making all of the calls and cancelling everything for her.

I posed the original question because at a recent graduation ceremony, I finally deduced that my ex will be in my life until death parts us. As a parent who separated when our kidlet was 1 and is now 22, the ex is still in my life. Do I see him daily/regularly? No, of course not.

However when kidlet finishes her masters, plans a wedding, perhaps has some babies - those babies will have birthdays, dance recitals, and then weddings. And I fully intend on participating in all of the above as does he.

I suppose Ill go to his funeral, if he dies first, and I trust hell come to mine, if I go first. He might dance on my grave , but I doubt it. Hell hold himself back in front of the kidlet, and focus on being her parent, rather than on being an ex.
if you attack everyone involved, the common denominator is you. Attributed to OL
