*blushes a little at a positive female role model* I am happy she had fun. I miss those days with my kids, so I am happy to help you out. And if you are ever busy, I am happy to look after Brooklyn and Colton if you want.

I try my best to cherish all the moments I have with them. And I may take you up on that sometime. It's difficult being both the mom and the dad for them. I don't know how to be a mom...when Brooklyn gets older it will be more difficult when she has questions that I can't really answer.

*gently places a hand on his arm and smiles* Don't worry, I think you are doing a great job. From what I heard of Brooklyn she loves you very much and are the greatest person in her life. And if she is having any question, just give me a call. I am happy to help out. And about being mom and dad at the same time.. I know exactly what you mean. It's hard, and even harder when your own kids don't even like you anymore. I know my situation is different than yours, but believe me, it would make a lot easier if my kids were like Brooklyn.

Thank you so much! That really means alot to me! I think my situation is only easier because my kids are young and even though they loved their mom they were not attached to her as your kids were to your husband. If Brooklyn and Colton were the ages of your kids when Helen left I would probably be in a similar situation as you. Your kids love you, they might not show it in the greatest way but they do. How could they not? You're their mom, you've given them nothing but love. They're grieving and I know you are too but they grieve differently than you do.

*nods* I know my kids blamed me for their mom leaving and then they blamed themselves, which was the worst!! But eventually they came around again and things are generally great with us. Until sometimes their mom tries to come back into their lives unannounced and of course always leaves again and it makes things difficult again for a while.

*gently squeezes his arm* And you are theirs. The way Brooklyn talked about you? It was as if you were her personal superhero! She even tried to explain to me how much she loves you, but *chuckles* decided that her arm were too short.

That's okay, Mr. Jacobs. *smiles* We all have our days. And for what's it's worth if, I think you are a nice guy yourself. Helen didn't know what she let go of. Not only her children, but also a guy with a big loving heart.
