I have a 19-month-old with my Ex. We were together for 4 years and then have been on and off for the past 5. We don't live together, but spend a lot of time as a 'family'. It has gotten to the point where things are just not working and we are fighting constantly, which is the last thing I want my son around. Anyway, things came to a head when we had a fight and he told me he felt like stabbing me. The week before he had a few drinks, started talking about things from many years ago that we have gone over and over, and got so angry he 'had to leave before he did something he regretted'. Anyway, we are not good for each other.
So for obvious reasons we aren't spending any time together, and I'm worried my son is going to be impacted. FOB had been staying over for a couple of weeks, so the last few days my son asks for him in the morning, and occasionally when he wakes at night. I think I may be over thinking things but reading Peepo tonight I was freaking out about reading a story about a mummy and daddy getting the baby ready for bed.
If anyone has had similar issues with FOB when their children are old enough to know something is going on, but way to small to comprehend.. any advice?
