Step-parent Creative Names?
Question by Theresa K: Step-parent Creative Names?
I am married to a wonderful man that had 2 children from a previous marriage. I have been in the children’s life since they were barely 1 & 3 and they are now 9 & 6. They have always called me by my first name & we have never pushed otherwise.
Now, the ex has remarried and they PUSHED the kids to call the new husband “Daddy” on the kids even though they have only been together less then 2 years. My husband isn’t totally against the “Dad” idea but he isn’t totally for it either.
I am just trying to think of maybe “names” that the kids can call myself and the new husband that would mean “Mom” & “Dad” but not those as that is reserved for their “real” parents (I hope that doesn’t sound horrible).
We are in a situation that there is 50/50 custoday & placement situation so all “parents” involved are very active in their lives. We the kids to feel like they can’t call the step-parent something if they want but my husband wants to reserve “Dad” for himself
