coparenting can be done

When I divorced I wasn't sure how we would get along. Turned out we did okay even though there were a few hiccups.I really just had to realize it wasn't about me it was about our son and that had to be the most important thing at that point.

    Glad it worked out between the two of you for your son's sake. Is it still going ok? (If you don't mind me asking).

    Yep, we do pretty good with it.

    I think it has a lot to do with him being deployed a lot when we were married so he deferred to me for pretty much all of the parenting decisions. Now we don't live together and he still does the same thing, so not a whole lot changed. He has input of course and we do discuss important things. But there's no fighting. We fought exactly one time (and it was a bad one) and he apologized afterwards, haha. He was being a jerk and he knew it though. Had I been totally in the wrong I would have admitted to it, I don't have a problem with doing that.

    Well, that's good. Must make it easier at least knowing you can successfully co-parent.
