My ex-husband and his wife just had their second baby. (I wrote more about him here.)

Congratulations to them. We had our differences and plenty of hard times but I always thought he would make an awesome father.

I know I am a bad person for feeling like this but...

I just want to crawl into a hole, cry myself to sleep, and never come out.

Of course, I won't. I'll ignore it and forget it.

At least... I'll try.


  1. You aren't a bad person, just caught in a hard situation. I think we've all felt that way about someone's pg news at one time or another, and the fact he's your ex makes it a million times more emotionally challenging to navigate. I'm sorry you have to go through this.

  2. *Hugs* No one will fault you for any feelings you might have. I think you've handled it well. Most wouldn't wish them well.

  3. Having known both of you...I think you would make a better mother than he does a father. I wish him well also...but you're my friend and I Love You. It's my job to tell you he's a turd.

  4. That would feel like salt in the wound. Gah! I'm sorry.

  5. Ugh. I'm so sorry sweetie. My ex and his wife had a baby in March. It sucks, bad.

    If you are a bad person, then consider me the devil!! Human nature to be hurt over something like that. Don't be so hard on yourself.

  6. you are NOT an awful person for feeling that way. i think its impressive that you can feel happy for them at all-- feeling sorry about your own situation does not diminish your happiness for them, it's a separate feeling & totally justified!

  7. Oh, ouch.

    That would burn me up. I am so sorry,


  8. It is ok. I am so bad, that I went wandering through Facebook, looking for people in my past that

    A. Might have children.
    B. Might look for me and see I have none.

    Then I blocked em. Because I am crazy after three years of this.

    I am actually considering leaving Facebook.
