    46&2= Tool song based on Jungian theory. I'm actually the lesser in the divorce. And my lawyer is killer. I'm the one paying child support, but I'm the one eligible for alimony.

    Re: I believe in magic

    Don't know if you guys are in Iowa or if it's already decided, but shared custody is the default preference. I made it very clear that I would not accept anything less so I get equal time with my boy. The child support is also offset to an extent (you pay her for half the time and she pays you, whoever makes more pays some). Maybe good information if anyone is going through that or will be.

    Re: I believe in magic

    Can't wait to be with my children tonight, hanging out at my brother's house ( in reality, he is my soon to be ex- brother in law, but he will always be my brother), eating pizza and popcorn and cheering on our Cyclones. I live for these days, I thrive for these days, I hustle for these days.

    Go Cyclones

    Yeah I'm spoiling my boys a lot, but I have to squeeze a weeks worth of love into a few days a week. They know how much I love them and I know they miss me by how excited they get when I come to pick them up.

    Yeah it sucks not to see them all the time, but I am a better dad now since it's just me and them. So much more one on one time and important moments.
    Not divorced but I travel for work a lot. Something I learned from my Mom who was divorced when I was growing up.

    "It is not the quantity of time spent together but the quality". Make every moment count and make memories that last a life time. There are way too many families that spend a lot of time with their kids but the amount of time actually focused on each other makes that time meaningless.

    Re: I believe in magic

    This breaks my heart for you. I can't imagine how hard it is, and what you are all going through - I'm sure it feels like 2/3 of your heart is missing when they're gone.

    My mom divorced my biological dad when I was little - but I can tell you that my memories of each are a lot happier when they were apart than when they were together. As hard as this is on all of you right now, you really are doing the best thing for your children in the long run. You're teaching them that an unhealthy relationship isn't okay, and they should want better for themselves and their children.

    Best wishes.

    Ok, I'm just going to vent here since we were talking about being divorced with kids.

    I just got a text from a girl I just started dating saying that me having kids was too much pressure for her. WTF? I wasn't asking you to adopt them or anything.

    I care about my kids. Eff me right?

No matter when this run ends, remember this: it will be okay as long as you believe in magic. The future is bright, both for me and our beloved Cyclones.

    Hang in there...and I hope you have loads of magic come your way...

    It sucks...but i can understand it. It IS a lot for a new person without kids to deal with. The relationship alone is tough....but the kids, the ex...takes a pretty tough person that understands they wont be number 1 in your life all the time....but better to know now.
