A letter to my children

Dear Princess, Buddy and little man, 

First of all, before I say anything else, I hope you know how much I love you. You are the most precious things in my life – my reasons for living – and that will never change. 

I know you are sad about me and your dad splitting up. I know that this sometimes makes you angry too. Believe it or not, it is hard on all of us. 

There are lots of reasons why I think your dad and I shouldn’t be together any more. But this doesn’t stop me from caring about him and it definitely does not stop either of us from loving you. I have made this decision because I think it is the best thing for all of us, not the easiest. 

I know it’s not easy at the moment. It takes time to accept that things have changed. Soon, hopefully, your dad will have his new house which will mean that you will get the chance to spend time with each of us more equally. 

You dad and I may be apart, but we will always be together in being your parents. We both want what is best for you and we will work together to make that happen. We want you to be happy and although you feel sad at the moment, this will feel easier in time. It’s OK to talk to us about how you feel – it is important that we understand what you are going through. 

Keep remembering that we love you – living at different addresses will never change that. 

Love you always my babies, 

Mum
