My children are with me 99. 9% of the time. Their Dad lives out of state. I do have my parents near by and they are willing to help in babysitting my kids but PLEASE understand that my children are a huge part of my life. If you are unsure thatyou want to be involved with a woman who has children then I would appreciate if you wouldn't respond. My kids are incredible and they deserve someone who is willing to accept them :-) Thanks!!
