Ding Dong She's gone!

Today my EX told us that he and his DP ( the OW) had split up.

All my DCs could say - "we never ever have to go there again and we never ever have to see her again, do we"

I found the eldest, aged 8 crying in his room - he was sad that he would not see one of her DCs again but "mostly Mummy, I am not going to be stressed anymore".

I can not explain the relief that my DCs, no longer have to experience her hatred.

Well as your dc dislike her so much I can say I'm happy for you because they will be happier!

So pleased for them - this happened to my DD and it was wonderful when ex got together with his next g/f as she was lovely, such a relief. I get so cross when people are snide about new g/f's 'playing happy families'; there's nothing worse than them having to cope with an adult who hates/resents them - you certainly appreciate it when someone is trying to make an effort with your DC if you've had to cope with someone like that!

It is utter relief for the DCs - I moved on from him about 18 months ago. I sat like a gawping fish when he told us - I knew things were not going well - but have to say did not expect this.

No more building them up for contact at his place, no more skype messages in the dark as they cried - it feels like a bit of an anti-climax but I am so relieved for them.

Overall great sadness for all the collateral damage - her DCs, my DCs, her Ex, me, friends, family and the new DCs.
