    Well... Hmmm. So many reasons but now that I can break it down with perspective.

    I think it came down to we were just not in love anymore. Parenting changed us... Or I changed and he stayed the same. Not sure. I stopped liking him.

    Also... He had an infant son when we met and I left my career and everything and threw myself into step parenting and then motherhood and found myself living a life of car pools and snacks and stay at home momness that I felt empty. I loved my home life but felt I wanted more. And was stuck.

    We didn't fight. Nothing really happened to mark the end. We grew apart, grew differently and the above of having something for myself. Fulfilling my own desires and goals.

    It just got yucky. We became room mates, barely dealing with the other. No one did anything hateful or wrong we just.. Stopped liking each other and soon we started resenting.

    We decided to end out marriage before it DID get ugly. Neither of us wanted to have that life together anymore. So we ended it.

    Some ask me why I didn't fight harder for the kids or go through counseling but I felt and knew it would just prolong the inevitable and it would turn nasty.

    I always believed my kids would be happier in a home where there was love and kindness rather than w two parents fighting or with bad energy. They feel that.

    We remain kind to the other. It's hard. He moved to NY to years ago, got re married and the hardest part is that my kids miss him.

    I hold nothing against him for our journey together. I wish he didn't move only cause of my kids. But aside from regular ex irritants and co parenting struggles.. All is good.

    And things are exactly as they should be. I have no regrets. I've worked hard to keep my kids happy and well adjusted and they shine.

      I love being on stage and telling my stories. For me there is nothing better than a room full of people laughing at what you're telling them.

      No matter how many times I'm up there, I still get super nervous and excited though.

      My comedy is story based and perspective. Not so much joke then punch line and now that I do a lot of comedy for moms about moms.. I also get the feeling that I give moms a chance to say "this is hard." And then find humor in it.

      Thank u for asking!!

          If you could go back in time would you still marry your ex?

          GOOD question.. and YES.. AS much as I know we weren't meant to be.. I was once madly in love with him and had a great wedding and time together.. And of course my kids... Would I marry him NOW? Um.. heck no.. eew... BUT.. this is why I'm glad that we were able to get out while we could.. as I have no ill feelings or resentment..

          Life is exactly as it should be.. Everything for a reason..

          So.. lol.. YES.. absolutely.. also made me who I am today.. partly anyway..

          Thank you for asking..

            We live in Los Angeles, CA. I'm a writer, comedian, actor and single mom of two. Parenting is hard. I try to keep a sense of humor about it all and find the find the funny... in what is most likely NOT funny (i.e. boogers, meltdowns, homework, etc.).
