My Sons Dad & I Decided to be Co-Parents [The Break-Up]

(Our sons newborn photos)

My sons dad and I relationship started about 5 years ago, thanks to the wonderful world of Instagram. We started out long-distance but that distance quickly got shorter when he decided to move to my hometown to be with me. Our connection was strong in the beginning, we simply couldn't get enough of each other. I had finally found my first love! We experienced the same things most couples do with ups and downs but in the end of the day we still chose each other. As time passed we both started to evolve into different people and unfortunately it had a negative impact on our relationship. The only thing that worked for us was being our sons mommy & daddy and this is something we both agreed on.

It's been a little over 2 months since we broke up and decided just to be co-parents for our son. It was very hard for me to accept the fact my son was going to have a 2 household family but its better then the alternative of raising him in a toxic environment. After the break up it was clear that we will always have love for each other, we have a bond that only we understand, and I can't wait to build a friendship with him. We both wish nothing but happiness for each other.

For those who may be unfamiliar with the term co-parenting it's when 2 people share the responsibility of being a parent to a child without being in a relationship. My sons and dad and I plan to continue what we're already doing now, we will take our son out for fun, still go on our mini weekend getaways that we absolutely love, and most importantly put our son first. We hope our family and friends support us with this decision and to be understanding. This is far from ideal but this is whats best for us and our son.
