They've made plans to get together "with the kids." How dangerous could that possibly be?!
Guest blogger Emily: Before we got married, I definitely was the jealous type. I hated the idea that my husband had other girlfriends before me. In fact, I hated that other girls merely existed. But now, in my old married age (34), things have changed. I have grown up and moved on to other concerns.... Am I spending enough quality time with my family? Am I keeping my child safe? Am I teaching him enough about the world? No longer do I concern myself with "other chicks" and that petty nonsense. Like most moms, I have bigger fish to fry.
In fact, when my husband (who is in between jobs due to a corporate transfer) told me that he was going to take our son on a play date with an ex-girlfriend who he reconnected with, I didn't even think twice. I said "cool," and didn't give it much thought. I was happy that he and my son would get out of the house and maybe go to a different park than they're used to. I was happy that my son would get to play with different children than he's used to playing with. And frankly, I was happy to think that maybe my husband would see his once former flame in a different light -- now that she's a crumb-laden, harried, and somewhat frazzled mommy just like me.
But I'm starting to wonder if maybe I need to change my tune... Many friends have warned me and told me that my open mind and trusting heart is going to get me in trouble. Sure, the idea of my husband catching up with his gorgeous ex-heartthrob isn't the most ideal scenario, but how bad can it be? Our kids will be right there. It's not like he's going to see her playing with "our" kids and envision what his life would have been like if she was Mommy... or would he??? Am I being totally naive? Is my husband's "harmless" play date just an opportunity to play with fire???
