So, after a year long deployment DD's BD now wants to be in her life. Wasn't in it much before the deployment either. Maybe 20 hours her whole life. She's 20 months now, but when this happens she'll be 23 months. I am moving back to the state he is stationed in in September. He wants to be in her life now. She has no idea who he is. To her DF is her daddy. I don't want her to get confused, and possibly hurt if he decides to not be there again. I plan to introduce him as his name. Then later when she's older explain who he is and let her decide what to call him.
I wonder if this is the right way to do it? Any advice mamas? What age should I tell her who he is? And if it's not a good way to do it please give suggestions. I want to protect my daughter as much as possible, but I don't want to be one of "those BM's".
