Not sure if this belongs here or in Beyond Active Grieving.  But it's about my new life, and not about grief, so here goes....

My daughter is a little more than a year and a half.  Her father is my current boyfriend, Widower BabyDaddy.  I'm more than 4 1/2 years out, and he's more than 3 years out now.  As many of you may remember, I lived in NYC for more than a decade, but when I got pregnant, moved a couple/few hundred miles north to be with him.  Before I moved in, I wore a locket with DH's photos in it, every single day, all day, my wedding band (with his name engraved in it, as mine was in his) on the chain.  When I moved in, I took it off out of respect for him/our new life together.  I put it on every now and then - not often, maybe a few times a year.  I was wearing it yesterday.

I was changing my daughter's diaper.  She grabbed the locket and pried it open.  I thought she'd say, "guy," because that's her word right now for everyone that she doesn't know.  But she got really excited and yelled, "Daddy!"  To the photo of DH.

Awesome stuff, Miz.  Probably much easier than 'Mommy's late husband!'  ;)
