That's about how long it took for the garage door to open and for me to drive into the garage. That's also how long it took for me to realize the kids' bikes were gone. That's all it took to realize my life with them has changed. That's all it took to understand that I will no longer been there for the day-to-day fatherly duties. That's all it took to understand that I no longer am a father at least in a physical sense and that the kids would no longer see me. That's all it took to realize that the Mom would be the only one raising the kids. That's all it took to understand my goals have changed whether I liked it or not. That's all it took to realize the kid's will have their lives drastically effected.
This happened last March. Seven months later, I get called/emailed from the ex. She now fears what will happen to the kids should she die. She now worries about their future. She nows says it's hard being a single parent. She nows realize things seven months later that I already knew in 30 seconds. I know there are slow learners out there but damn, can't they all be shipped to another continent or something? Maybe Australia or wherever the hell so that I don't have to deal with them?
