    The other day I was driving my two daughters home from school, and the kindergartener asked me with all serious when we were going to move back to Daddy’s house and be a family again.

    The fifth of never. Ok, I kept that answer to myself and gently explained to her (again) that Mommy and Daddy aren’t getting back together, that we love her and her sister very much, but that we made each other too crazy to live together.

    Then came her very small voice, “But Mommy … Daddy says it’s your fault.”

    Huh. I guess no one can accuse him of being anything less than amicable to his baby mama, because Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis and his ex, Carla Rodriguez, seem to have a pretty close relationship. Like to the point where they kind of appear to be nothing short of best buds.

    Or at least that's what we can probably assume, based on this photo of Juan Pablo and Carla sitting together reading an US Weekly containing an article all about what a shitty dude he supposedly is.

    Yep. Apparently Juan Pablo's exes are quick to throw him under the bus, deeming him a "playboy" and saying he will "never settle for one woman."

    But it looks like Carla doesn't have a problem with him.

    Some years ago, I found myself once again single and trying to find guys to date. Ugh, just put a hot poker in my eye. I'm sure there are plenty of good men out there, but absolutely none of them were on the dating site I selected to start my dating journey. Well, except one guy. Let's call him Jim. Jim was cute, witty, gainfully employed, and had 2-year-old daughter. He was also divorced. Which would explain why he was on a dating site. But there was just one problem -- he was still very amicable pals with his ex-wife.

    Divorce is a life-changer, for sure. The death of a marriage means that nothing will ever be the same again. Committing your life to someone, and then having that bond broken -- for whatever reason -- is going to change you.

    The thing about grief is that you don’t know how you’re going to come out the other side. When you’re taking things minute by minute, and then hour by hour, and day by day, eventually you look up and realize that a whole heck of a lot of things have happened that you didn’t see coming.

    This year I ate Christmas dinner seated between my ex-husband and my boyfriend. If that sounds awkward, well... it kind of was. But it was my idea. This is the reality for my family: We're not going to have a typical, traditional Christmas dinner because we're not a typical, traditional family. But maybe that's all right -- and maybe my kind of family is more common than I think.

    I did it you guys. I survived my very first post-separation Christmas, and I only cried in front of people twice! Hey, that’s pretty good. And in all fairness, one of those times was because nobody saved me any caramelized onion and feta tartlets. I take my food pretty seriously.

    Everyone says the first one is the roughest. Who this Everyone is, I have no idea, but Everyone always thinks they’re right. They might be. I don’t know yet, this is my first Christmas since 2000 without my soon-to-be-ex-husband by my side.

    It’s always rough on kids when their parents aren’t together, but you do your best to make things work and help the kids understand that both parents still love them very much. Believe me, this task is much easier in theory than practice.

    So hat’s off to Teen Mom 2's Kailyn Lowry, who recently uploaded a video to Instagram to show that her son Isaac still has regular contact with his biological dad Jo Rivera.

    What to do with the engagement ring and wedding band after a breakup?! Not an easy decision. One man who never made it to the altar with his lady love is now lovingly referring to her as "Satan herself." So he's doing what any man in his right mind would do and is selling the ring. On Craigslist. For way less than he paid.

    The only twist is his ad to sell the 1.5-carat diamond sparkler states how the ring may be cursed and he goes on to explain why in incredible but heartbreakingly hilarious detail.

    I have a confession to make: I'm still in love with my ex-boyfriend. Which wouldn't be so bad if we hadn't been broken up for several years now, and if there was absolutely no chance in hell I would ever get back together with him. You see, we honestly can't stand each other. When we were dating, we didn't go a week without a huge blow-up. We don't understand each other; we don't have the same idea about what a relationship is; and I suspect, deep down, we didn't even like each other very much. That didn't stop us, however, from falling madly in love.
