Dating single dad full custody
And even then, it's not like I leapt from a cake and shouted, "I AM YOUR NEW MOM!!!!!!!!!!! I'm still just a buddy who kicks it from time to time to join in on eating pizza or playing "balloon" or the occasional ride home from school.
When and if my boyfriend wants to explain my role in his life to his child, that's not really up to me.
This situation is different, because he already takes on that role for his child while still taking decent care of himself.
He has developed a wisdom to help him identify the difference between the two, and if you haven't already done the same, hanging with him long enough will be educational.
I've never considered my income sizable until I started thinking of the glaring fact that I don't have to split it with anyone.
It's kinda unbelievably cute to watch them nerd out on fatherhood together. Granted, I'm a fairly petite person and my boyfriend's child is seven.
Even though I modeled it for jokes above, I resisted the urge to actually don and sport it around. Every situation is different, but my boyfriend is still on amicable terms with his child's mother, who also lives near us.
