Taking care of a child as a single parent is not an easy task, especially if there’s some bad blood between the parents.
Of course, most parents agree that staying amicable would best benefit the child. Just check out this father of two who still buys roses for his ex-wife!
Though Jessica Singleton and Jon Megason are no longer together, they also continue to have a very loving relationship. They share a son, and both love him more than anything. Although their relationship is no longer romantic, they still come together as a family to provide and care for their baby boy.
In a post, the mom described how Jon goes above and beyond, not just for their child, but for her as well! Jon doesn’t even have to pay through the state, because he would do anything for the safety and happiness of the mother of his child and their son!
You can read Jessica’s touching words about her ex below.
This is my ex. This right here is more valuable than gold. This is a man who doesn’t pay a dime through the state because when my son needs new clothes, I just call him.
This is a man who buys a bundle of kids’ movies on Vudu so even I can enjoy them with my son in my own home. A man who drops off the $45 box of pull-ups at my front door so I don’t have to load him up and go to the store.
One who takes his son in 10 min notices far often than he should because I have too much to get done or just need a nap. This is a man who listens to me cry because I’m stressed out. This is a man who tells his son not to forget mommy’s boyfriend when he lists his favorite people off the top of his head… A man who rushes over because we got locked out of the house or spends his evening fixing something for us.
This is a man who labeled the presents he bought his son from “mommy” because mommy couldn’t get him as many. A man who still watches my sister’s kids so our son can be with his cousins. One who accompanies me to meet strangers from Craigslist to ensure we are safe. This is the diaper-bag-wearing, chocolate-milk-making, selfless, protective, generous, accomplished FATHER to my son.
The number of obstacles we’ve had to overcome to get to this point is tremendous. This was not easy, this was a choice. Stop giving excuses and come together for your children. I’m the most stubborn person that I know and forgiveness came easily to us for the sake of our son. And because of that, I see my son every single day. We always welcome each other’s presence.
In case I haven’t told you lately, I’m grateful for you. Most importantly for the motivated individual you are and how you provide Pierson with a phenomenal role model despite the foundation you once had. I love the amount of love my son will always have from you.
