RD&T’s contributing writer, Jeanette Schneider, shares her story of co-parenting and navigating life when relationship dynamics change.
I blogged anonymously as Little Ms. J for several years. Although I had a nice little following and over 250 articles, I decided to take down the site a little over two years ago. It just didn’t feel right.
When I wrote as Little Ms. J, I was a married woman who was coming into her career and wanted very badly to have a baby. I wrote about my fun adventures with my hot husband and our parenting aspirations. I needed to get my time in as a dancing tartlet in high heels with a handsome man by my side before burp rags and cellulite made their appearance. I was sassy, snarky and bold. I was also very naive.
Then I had the baby, I came into my career and got divorced.
The storyline as I knew it ended, and I had to figure out how to rewrite the me I knew. So, I dug into who that person was, came up for air and as I started LORE, I thought, “Oh, I’ll just go back every now and then and grab an old post off of Little Ms. J as a ‘Throwback,’ something fun.”
