“It’s really hard being a divorced kid. In my dreams they are still married to each other so I didn’t have to be different from everyone else.”
Divorce is the biggest chance I experienced in my life. I remember before when we were all in the same house where I had an awesome playroom. There was a really tiny door and it opened into this really small room, and my Dad and my Mom used to come and play with me. They could barely fit in, so they always had to crawl around. It was really fun. I was four.
But I don’t really remember anything about living together in the same place as both my mom and my dad. At least not really. I miss living together with both my Mom and my Dad because I want to know how we would live together. I never really experienced that – or I did, but I was really small, so I don’t really remember.
I remember being at church and they were sitting in different pews. My Mom always sat in the one to the far left, and my Dad always had the one to the far right, and I wanted to sit in the one in the far middle! When I’m at Dad’s house, I miss my Mom. When I’m at Mom’s house, I miss my Dad. It’s really hard being a divorced kid. In my dreams they are still married to each other so I didn’t have to be different from everyone else.
