My DD7 took my fWH's craziness very hard. She stopped sleeping. Started wetting the bed again. Became clingy and depressed.
In the last 7 months of true R she is gaining back her confidence and trust in her father, however, every now and then she will say something that shows just how deep the pain goes for her. Tonight we are planning to go trick-or-treating with a friend of her's and his father. DD is a planner, like her momma , so at 5:15 AM, she's up and asking who will be going out with her and who will be staying home to dole out candy.
Honestly, I just assumed that since her friend's dad is going it would be my fWH that takes her around the neighborhood. DD wants me to take her and this is her reason, "Momma, you have to take me trick-or-treating because I know that, even in the dark, you will always be there for me....so I won't be scared." I kissed her on the head and then cried in the shower.
Now the question is do I tell my fWH about this or just keep it between her and I?
