You bring back a lot of memories. My stepson is graduating from high school in a few short weeks and your essay was a reminder of co-parenting struggles this past 15 years. I think back on all of the shuffling of him back and forth, all of the coordination, and the early years of conflict. But it was worth it. He spent half his time here in the evenings, went to school there, every other weekend. He did a lot of enriching activities. He’s a healthy, happy young man. Whew. Co-parenting was hard, but worth it. Admittedly, we’re the dad. I fully admit the mom did more work!
