I think a lot of people here are being way too hard on you.  I think some of the things you said are definitely red flags, particularly her involvement with an abusive man and the potential animal abuse.  If a person would mistreat an animal then they will probably have no problem hurting a child either.  I assume she’s no longer with the boyfriend that shoved her but just the fact that she was with someone that violent and unstable shows a lack of good judgement.  Other things you mentioned do seem a little petty though, like the screaming in a restaurant.  All kids do that, I’d be more interested in hearing how she was dealing with him while he cried.

Ignore the rude poster who criticised you for calling him your son.  That was so uncalled for and I can only assume it’s coming from someone who has a stepmom she hates or has a child of her own that has a stepmother that she hates.  In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of the people on this thread are divorced or separated from their kid’s fathers because I hear a lot of resentment coming from them for no reason.

Document, document, document. Not things like tantrums, but illness and injury.

You guys are being so harsh with her. Obviously we’re biased when talking about people that we love, but does that make her wrong? No. And kudos to them for giving this child three parents as opposed to two. Even more love. I’m proud of her for calling this child her son. They are actually a family. And at two he’s a baby!
