As we left a restaurant this morning, another mother stopped me.
She wanted to know if they were all mine, at the same time telling me that they are so well behaved. (So glad she caught them on a good day!)
I hesitated for a moment. Not sure how to answer that. Do I say no? The boys are but I share ‘unofficial shared custody’ with the little girl’s mom? Which makes her my ‘some times’ foster child? Do I even try to explain that?
I the easy way out. Just said yes. Sometimes that is just easier. But it’s so much more complicated than that.
