    Thank you all for the kind words. Just want to do best for my girl. I am not perfect by any means, but I hope she will see someday how much I tried for her!

    @erinpye: thank you so much. I sure am trying!

    In case anyone is interested: Coparenting is NOT easy. There are so many moving pieces (boyfriends, girlfriends, new family structures, grandparents).

    We struggled for a very very long time figuring out what was best for our girl. I think that we have somewhat come to figure it out two years later. I still think we have a ways to go a lot of the time, but we at least now have a steady custody arrangement so there is no longer animosity about that.

    The biggest challenge, and one that I didn't realize, was the behavior discrepancy that happens. We've struggled for quite a while with the fact that her behavior is VERY different for me than it is for her Dad. But, now that I have gone through it I've been told by many how common it is for kids to have behavior issues when transitioning from house to house or to behave differently at each house. It's exhausting, but we are turning a corner (maybe because she's getting older).

    There is life after divorce. And it can certainly be a good one for all involved.
