I amicably split from my wife in Dec 2020. After two months alone I got desperate for human touch and made an OLD profile. I quickly met a lovely woman and we're FWBs I guess? We haven't defined things (no ex talk, not exclusive) but we had a great summer (camping, hiking, biking, dinners, etc.) and I could see it getting serious. Problem is I haven't told her I'm estranged but still legally married. My ex has health issues that need my insurance and I can not cut her off after 10yrs together
At what age do you stop taking a bath with your child? My 3 year old & I were in the bath together and suddenly he reached out to my chest and said “mumma, your lungs are outside, mine are inside my body” I was so embarrassed! I told him that those were my breasts and that grown ups have slightly different body parts. I normally take a quick shower before him and sit in the tub with him, as that’s our bonding time. I was wearing underpants so thankfully he didn’t notice my non-existant penis

I secured a 2-year lease on my luxury studio during covid but am looking to transfer it to someone new around the 1-year mark (moving in with SO).

The studio is back at market price now (~$1200 more than my current rent).

I’m planning to visit my parents after 2 years. Last time I went home, it was with a fiancé - that fell apart during COVID. I feel like a failure going home and can’t believe this is causing me so much anxiety.

Any advice is appreciated!
So I plan to prepare treats this Halloween for the kids in my neighborhood. What kind of treats do I get to minimize dental damage? Putting in fruits, nuts, or apple chips would feel like I tricked them and ruined the treat, no? Do I just put in regular candy but add in a small travel size Crest toothpaste (like they do at the dentist) and pray that their parents taught them to brush regularly? My conscience is torn. Please help.
