I have to say that as a mother I didn’t trust my ex to care for my children properly. (Ok, Ok, OUR children!) I had that instinct right from the beginning. I think it came from the fact that my ex was a bit of a mixed bag; in many things my ex was quite competent, but in others he was grossly foolish, if not dangerous to the kids at times. This might be all right in the conduct of a business, but in the care and upbringing of children, I felt his behavior totally unacceptable. Given this situation, it must seem amazing to anyone that I agreed to co-parent with my ex once we divorced.

To this day, I still remember the struggles I endured surrounding the first Mother's Day after I filed for divorce. It is striking that I filed in July, and as we approached Mother's Day the following year, we had no Parental Responsibility Plan in place and so it was unclear how that holiday was going to be handled. You might think that it would be automatic that the kids would spend Mother's Day with me, but not so.
