One Boston Dad is letting people know that just because divorce happens, that doesn’t mean you have to stop loving and being kind to one another. 

Billy Flynn Gadbois wrote a Facebook post about how he woke up early to buy flowers, cards and breakfast ingredients so his kids could surprise their mom, his ex-wife, on her birthday.

“Per usual someone asked me why the hell I still do things for her all the time,” Gadbois wrote. “This annoys me. So I’ma break it down for you all. I’m raising two little men. The example I set for how I treat their mom is going to significantly shape how they see and treat women and affect their perception of relationships.”

It’s a two-way street: On Father’s Day, Gadbois’s ex-wife makes sure their sons, ages 4 and 8, have a present for him, too.

The couple promised one another that just because they did not work out, doesn’t mean that they have to be hostile towards one another. 

Peaceful co-parenting after a divorce is no doubt tough, but Gadbois says they effort is well worth it.

This is a wonderful outlook on life, love and family. When their are kid involved in a split…good co-parenting is essential. After all, once you had those children, life isn’t so much about you any more, it is about the kids!

Kudos to you Mr. Gadbois!
