Conversation with my 7 year old son tonight.
Jason: if you and Da never got married how did you make me?
Me: we just loved each other that much
Jason: and then you didn’t?
Me: we still did. We just couldn’t keep living together
Jason: because he did drugs
Me: yeah, it wasn’t safe
Jason: because if I grew up seeing him do drugs I might do drugs and think it’s ok?
Me: well, that’s one reason.. but he also wasn’t very safe when he used them
Jason: yeah.. like when he punch the wall and stuff. He was really strong. He could hurt someone
Me: thankfully he didn’t.. but we couldn’t have him live with us… But we still loved him and he still loved us
