I’m happy you’re so happy!  Your bf having you meet his kids so quickly and move in seems very risky for the little ones, but it seems to have worked out very well for you all.

This is probably the best post I have ever seen! It is for sure my favorite! I am in a similar situation only with two step daughters and I would like to say that I had all the same concerns! Oh and I am only 22 πŸ™‚ I can’t imagine being anywhere butwith them and their amazing dad and we are getting married next month πŸ™‚

I really hope you guys are serious enough to stay together for the long haul.  Those children have already lost one mother, it would be a shame for them to lose another. Just remember that you’re dealing with two children’s lives here, you’re not just playing house. I’m surprised the father allowed them to get close enough to call you “mommy” this soon.  

Good luck to you.

@hammerpants:  Agreed. I’m all for “When you know you know” when it comes to adults who are willingly entering a relationship, but when there are little children involved, PLEASE proceed with caution. I’m reading a lot about you fulfilling your dream of parenting, but these are people with very real needs of their own. It sounds great, but it hasn’t been that long. For them to be calling you mom this early on seems very fast.

It’s great that you’re happy but I agree with the PP’s. I found this post more alarming than “aww” worthy. It’s concerning that after only a matter of weeks, these children are calling you mommy. They’re so young and impressionable. What would happen if your relationship doesn’t work out (let’s be honest, you’re 3 months in so anything can happen) and they’ve now lost 2 “mommies” instead is just one? I bet that would be an awful lot for such young kids to handle. 

Regardless, hopefully you guys live happily ever after and this doesn’t become an issue but in my own personal opinion, it seems like everyone should slow down a bit.

@KatyElle:  @Thatswhatshesaid:  +1. What happens if things don’t work out? I feel sorry for those kids. They’re young, impressionable and could be really hurt if things don’t work out.

I have seen this work before! A very close friend met a guy at her work with 3 kids. They moved in together after a month, got married after a year, and they are still happily married 3 years after meeting. So it can work! πŸ™‚

@rubyred605:  I think most of the PPs are concerned because it doesn’t work more than it does, and when that happens, it is kids that are going to suffer.

What about the ‘when you KNOW, you know?’ girls? How many of you just KNEW when you first met your DH?

I’m happy for you- I think it’s great that this has worked out so well πŸ™‚
