Forr those with children..
Just curious about where you tell them you are going on a date or leaving over night. My boyfriend lives out of state so I'm gone from saturday morning before she wakes until mid day sunday. This happens once a month. I tell her I'm going to visit family, but the last time I said this she asked why her and daddy couldn't go. It doesn't sit well with me at all. I'm always honest with her about things she asks. I've never sugar coated anything. Just made sure it was age appropriate. We aren't out yet and she is only 5 and she's not at the "chosen family" stage with him yet. So I'm trying to figure out how to explain my absence that makes sense to her and sits well with me.
