Independence: When Divorced Parents Make You Stronger “Girls, your mother doesn’t love y’all like I do.” Daddy points out as we drive down the street. He just picked Ashley and I up from Momma’s House, and we get to spend the entire weekend together. I love it when Daddy picks us up. We always have more fun with him than we do with Momma. I’m only six years old, but on weekends with him we get to have fun all weekend. It is always better with Daddy than Momma. We make plans to go to the movies, and eat out on Friday night, which is something that Momma never lets us do. On Saturday, Daddy makes us wake up early.

We spend the next two hours yelling at each other in the living room. It was World War III in our house. I look over at my mom while Ashley and Jeff are fighting, and I can see Mom crying.
