why isn't daddy here? JennyKMO San Antonio, Texas 1 posts

Sooo the day I've dreaded has come.Out of no where my 5 year old daughter asked me why isn't there a daddy. Why is it just me, her, and her brother. I mumbled that we're a family and changed the subject. She caught me off guard and I didn't know what to say.



Me and their dad broke up when she was 2 so she doesn't remember when he was around. Since we broke up he sees them very little, but she knows him and all.



It took me forever to figure out what I felt I should say. I've decided on telling her that we couldn't get along and we tried really hard. Then letting her know we both love her.



She asked 2 days ago and hasn't asked since. But because it was so out of no where I know this is something she's been thinking about. Should I go ahead and talk to her about it or wait till she asks again?

Eh, I waited until mine asked again to explain.
