    It's dumb that I am now used to not seeing my

    kids for 3-4 days every week. The old saying "kids are resilient" blah blah. Yes it's true but if I get a leg bitten off by a crocodile I'm sure Id get used to not having a leg in time too!...doesn't mean sh_t. It just means all of us have to make the best of the new normal...

    The enemy of my soul is a liar.

    At times I hear him slinging mud at me "if you're such a good dad why aren't you living with them now ?" I answer back "....it's because ...it's complicated..,but me only seeing them a couple days a week has no bearing on who I am as their father. I am a great dad." And...
