Play-dough sharks

My kids liked to play with Play-dough when they were little. One time, Rebecca made a shark with it. She showed it to us and we were very impressed. We made a big deal about it. It had a body and fins, including a dorsal fin. She did such a good job that I took a picture of her with it.

Then Rachel got a little jealous because Rebecca was getting so much praise for her shark. She tried to make a shark too, but… well… it didn’t turn out quite the same. It was more like a blob. I didn’t want her to feel bad, so we made a big deal about it and I took a picture of her with her “shark” too.

The pictures turned out really well, and we would look at them from time to time and smile at how adorable the girls were. They both look happy with their creations.

I'm an adult child of divorce, having been raised in multiple divorce/remarriage situations. I'm writing in order to shed light on the problems of divorce from the perspective of the child. I will also discuss problems with other non-triad family structures, since there is a lot of overlap. People often think that better parenting skills will overcome problems in non-triad arrangements. While I agree that parenting skills are important, they cannot overcome the problems I discuss such as fractured ontology and perpetual liminality. I converted to the Catholic faith in 2012, and will discuss Catholic things from time to time as well.
