In the wake of her parents' divorce announcement, I've been thinking about my favorite celebritot. Actually, I might need to change up my terminology cause homegirl is 6 now! Here's what Suri's saying about it:
Please respect my privacy during this difficult time. (Just mine though — everyone else is fair game.)
I will be vacationing in the Cayman Islands for the Independence Day holiday with my financier, and going over my plans to seek sole custody of myself.
I appreciate the concern and the warm wishes.
Poor thing. The good news is that although when the story first broke, headlines were saying that Katie was seeking full custody, apparently Katie and Tom have reached a very civil agreement that will involve them working together and will be best for Suri (I read a story here). Tom may have a few loose scientological screws, but . . . he's her daddy.
This issue is actually kinda personal--not only due to my undying love for Suri (if you need to be reminded how beautiful she was as a baby, click here), but because Matt's had to deal with this with his daughter, and it has been pretty devastating. I can't understand why any mother would want to prevent her child from having a relationship with the child's father (unless the father was dangerous, of course). Kids do so much better when they have loving relationships with both parents. No matter how angry you are, shouldn't you ultimately want what's best for your child, and put her best interest above your own? I think that's the essence of parenting. Please send positive thoughts toward us--Matt has a court date tomorrow.
What did you do this weekend? I spent two whole days laying by the pool, and now I'm sporting an awesome burn-tan. ;)
