Not all divorce stories are the same.
After their split, Kristin Cavallari and Jay Culter tried dating again. It did not succeed.
That doesn’t mean they still don’t spend time together despite their inherently awkward situation.
In fact, the exes plan to spend the holidays together … even if they are not, you know, together.
Kristin Cavallari spoke Us Weekly this week explains why she and Jay rub elbows when most exes would be glaring daggers.
“For me, it’s just about putting the kids first,” she reasoned.
Kristin emphasized: “Children are the only thing that matters and what is best for them.”
“That’s how I look at it,” Kristin continued.
She commented: You just have to get the best out of it. … “
Kristin added, “Luckily we’re able to spend it together, and I’m really grateful for that.”
Kristin and Jay share three children: 9-year-old Camden, 7-year-old Jaxon and 5-year-old Saylor.
Apparently, they have a lot of favorite, over-the-top traditions.
“We’ve got the goblins,” Kristin dished up. “We did that long before Elf on the Shelf.”
“The elves come a week before Christmas, and if you’re good, they put a little in your sock,” Kristin described.
“If you’re bad, you get coal,” she added, referring to a tradition borrowed from the older Krampus traditions.
Kristin stated, “I always make an Italian meal on Christmas Eve, which is really fun.”
This holiday review will not be without precedent.
Kristin and Jay announced their breakup more than a year and a half ago, in April 2020.
Just seven months later, they were together for Thanksgiving – something that Kristin confirmed at the time.
“I actually just want to use it with my kids and [my estranged husband] Jay Cutler as a family, “Kristin revealed over a year ago.
“So I’m looking forward to that,” she said at the time of her Thanksgiving 2020 plans.
“I’m glad we’re able to use it together and have these conversations,” Kristin added, “even though we’re in the middle of getting divorced.”
“So I’m grateful for where we are at the moment,” Kristin said last year.
Clearly, she was already in the holiday spirit when she gave that interview, even though it was still October 2020.
Even now, Kristin says, she and Jay still have tough conversations and “real parenting” as exes.
“[We have] real conversations about things, lessons from real life, ”Kristin assured.
“I actually love this phase that we are in more than any other phase we have been in,” she said.
Kristin added, “There’s a part of me that sometimes misses the newborn putter and the cute little toddlers, mushy babies.”
“But where we are is really nice,” Kristin said, “because I have real conversations with my kids.”
She pointed out, “They are their own people.”
Kristin remarked, “They really form their identity, and it’s really exciting.”
For example, Saylor is currently working on jewelry.
Jaxon, meanwhile, is “for clothes and shoes,” Kristin shared.
Of course, she used the opportunity to join her brand just in time for the holiday season, but we can not blame her for that.
“I feel like this year, more than ever, everyone is really excited to come back and holiday parties,” Kristin said, though the deadly pandemic is not over.
“And I feel like we’re going to dress up even more than we might normally want,” she suggested.
“So,” Kristin said, “we have a little glitter and glam that we don’t always have.”
