What I explained to her, in simple, basic terms, was that we were no longer going to be a family. Daddy was going to have his place, and mommy was going to have her place, and she was going to be spending time at both places. She would be with Daddy on the weekends and be with Mommy during the week. We weren't going to be in the same house anymore together.
