In every story there is a beginning, a middle, and an end. Sometimes the story has many chapters and sometimes only a few. With Cicily and I, there were many years of chapters, and unfortunately, this story is now ending… and it’s time to write a new book.
We (Cicily and I), started this blog as a scrapbook for our children a couple of years ago. It was a way for us to record memories for ourselves, keep a record of events and feelings for our children when they get older, as well as keep our families up to date with what’s going on in our lives and with our family. As many of you know, our family dynamic has changed. Cicily and I are no longer together- and, even though it has been very hard for us, we are attempting to make this transition as smooth as possible for our children.
We have many friends and family, who have been a great support to each of us. And it’s important to know, that even though we each can point fingers at who is at fault, or who was responsible for the demise of our relationship: None of that matters. What matters is that we spent many many years together, and have two beautiful boys who we love and adore. What is important right now is that our children adjust as easily as possible and that they each know that they are loved by us, and by each and every one of you.
It is also important to remember that yes, Cicily and I are no longer together, but Dimitri and Zachary have been, and always will be brothers. Because of this, we have started a new blog http://dimitriandzachary.blogspot.com/ as we begin this new book in our lives. Cicily and I will both have access to this blog, and both be able to post pictures and updates on our children. Some posts may have one child and some posts may include both. I think it depends on how many activities the boys do together and how often we get the desire to post.
Thank you to everyone who has continued to support each of us, and make both of our children feel loved. I know it is hard, with the ending of a relationship to not take sides, or let your opinions of each of us affect how our children are treated. Remember that we love both of them, have raised both of them, and will continue to make every effort possible to make sure they both grow up to be the adorable, fun, and loving boys that they are.
That being said, I am excited to blog and keep everyone updated on the boys and the new steps they are taking in life. Stay tuned at our new blog for the fun new adventures that we are sure to have!!
