Divorce, Single Parenting, Dating, Sex, & Self-Recovery

A New Blog and a New Journey

Spread the love

I keep this blog (The Off Parent) on the down-low out of respect for my ex-wife and my kids, now 10 and 12. But I wanted to share here, once, the newest blog, that will capture the ALL POSITIVE parts of this journey. If you’ve come along this far with The Off Parent from the depression and struggle to survive divorce, you’ve seen some huge changes. Now this blog is about love, desire, poetry, dating, AND single-parenting. The “divorce” aspect has moved slightly into the background. There will always be days… (grin)

As I work to prepare this journey for possible publication, I am launching a new project focused more exclusively on the joys of single fatherhood. From the moment of the end, so brilliantly captured in the film The Royal Tenenbaums, life has never been the same.

Divorce Humor - telling the kids

Daughter, “You’re getting divorced?”

“At the moment, no. But… It doesn’t look good.”

Tennis son, “Do you still love us?”

“Of course I do.”

Suit son, “Do you still love Mom?”

“Yes, very much, but your mother has asked me to leave, and I must respect her position on the matter.”

“Was it our fault?”

“No! Though… Obviously, we made certain sacrifices as a result of having children… but, uh… No, lord no.”

“Then, why’d she ask you to leave?”

“I don’t really know any more. Maybe, uh, I wasn’t as true to her as I could’ve been.”

“Well, she says…”

“Let’s just drop it.”
