Ainsley's Dad and I split about 6 months ago. I never want to be with him ever again, he says he misses me blah blah. He's an assface.

Ainsley is almost 4 1/2 and she keeps thinking he's coming back here. I try to explain to her that I love her and so does he but we just don't love each other anymore.

Is there anything else I can do, or just keep telling her that when she talks about getting us to love each other again?

She did say I was allowed to marry my best friend because he's one of her best friends dads. She's crazy :p

Noticed no one has commented for you yet. At that age I wouldn't think there's much you can do, other than explain what you have already explained. DS1 is only 2 so I have not had to explain why his dad and I are not together. Although it will probably be easier for me since he doesn't really know his dad. (he's one of those dads when its convenient for him).

My son is almost 5 and asked me the same question. I have himh pretty much the same answer you did. "Mommy and Daddy don't love each other anymore, so we don't live together anymore."
He seemed pretty content with the answer; however, he was a lot younger when his dad and I split.
I would just keep telling her the same thing. I think it's the best answer.
