At my daughter’s netball tournament a couple weekends ago she said something to me that prompted me to write this post. We were talking when we saw her friends' parents; but her parents are no longer together. The dad had actually brought his new girlfriend and the mother is pregnant with her new boyfriends baby. My daughter turned to me and said ‘that’s weird’. To that I responded, ‘baby, sometimes that’s how life work’s. They’re adults and they’re getting along.’ I think it was weird for her because it’s a situation she has yet to experience.
