Dating mother kids
[Read: Having heavy shoulders – the pitfalls of dating a widower] #7 Your plans will always change. Maybe their mother cannot take them to soccer practice or an emergency came up.
The minute you have children involved, your plans never completely turn out as planned. If you wanted to go to the movies on Friday night, but the kids unexpectedly come over, well, scrap that movie date.
Since his ex is in his life, she’ll want to get to know you as well since you’re spending time with her child.
If you have possession issues and are highly jealous, this isn’t going to work out for you. For example, if a boat is sinking, they usually get the women and children off of the boat first.But if there’s one life jacket left, and it’s between you and little Tommy, well, you better know how to swim. You don’t have kids, so I understand that this isn’t easy to grasp, but, that child is literally a part of him.So, no matter what, no matter how much your man loves you, he will put his kid first. Even if he cannot stand his ex, she’s still going to be in his and your life. You’ll see photos hanging of them on his walls, he’ll be making phone calls to her—that’s normal. So, they will be in communication with each other regarding their child.Don’t force anything, kids are highly emotionally and know when you’re being insincere.
What I suggest, spend some time individually with them and let them ask you whatever they’d like.Please don’t pull some overly excited, Mary Poppins-type role. That means, before you go all Sesame Street on them, just take it slow.
