I’m usually the first person to roll my eyes when it comes to the Kardashian/Jenner clan. In fact, earlier this year I felt so strongly that our society had reached max Kardashian capacity that I chose to stop talking about them completely during our “Hot in Hollywood” segment. Have you missed them? No? Me neither.
Except I still see various Kardashian stories drift across my plate, and I still follow a few of them on social media. It is part my job, after all, to keep up with celebrity news, and if anything truly exceptional happens with any of them I feel it’s my responsibility to cover it.
As far as I know, no one has covered what I’m about to talk about. It might actually be the tamest thing any of these people has ever done…but possibly the most important.
I was scrolling through Instagram when I stumbled upon Kourtney Kardashian’s family Halloween picture:
A post shared by Kourtney Kardashian (@kourtneykardash) on
What’s so important about this picture is that, even though Kourtney is no longer together with Scott Disick, they are both present in this photo, celebrating the holiday as a family.
This speaks VOLUMES to me about the way both Kourtney and Scott choose to interact as the co-parents of three young children. Even though they’re not together, they can still EXIST together and put their children first.
I know this is absolutely not possible in every split-parent situation. But I do wish more co-parents would strive for this type of civil relationship with each for the sake of their children. I am so thankful that my ex and I can do this. I’m not saying it’ll always be easy, because I’m sure it won’t. But it’s sure worth giving it a shot!
I don’t want this post to come off sounding preachy, I just wanted to spread a little positivity. Thank you for being an inspiration to those of us in a similar situation, Kourtney Kardashian!
