Hey hey. So, long story short, my ex-DW is moving herself and my two girls (9+6) six hours away in a few weeks. We've been split for four years and up till now custody has been split 50/50 though I've had much more of them than that in recent months. This is going to be a massive period of adjustment for both me and them and I'm more than a little nervous about the future. I'm nervous about them growing up without my direct influence (ex and I are very different), I'm nervous about our relationship and how we'll be as they get older. Hell, I'm even nervous that they will act out against their mother who (despite my private desire to dangle her by her toes over a bonfire) I want to see have a good relationship with our girls.
So, I'd like to hear some good news stories from those of you who have kids where mum and dad live in different places. I see enough of the bad news ones on here - but surely some people have managed to make this work.
Help me out here!
