My two year old saw three pumpkins sitting together in a bunch, a little one and two big ones, she says: "its mommy, (her name) and daddy!" Her father and i split up over a year ago, i'm now remarried and she lives with my husband and i, with visitation to her dad. Should I try to explain to her daddy and mommy aren't married, that i'm married to (DH) and he is her step-dad? I feel like it may hurt my DH's feelings that she doesn't identify him as a father when he thinks of her as his daughter. It makes me cringe when i hear her associate me with her father, I can't stand him, (though i don't let her know that). How can I explain this situation to her, what can i say, are there any books that could help?Answer Question
I found this title on Amazon.com but you can probably check your local bookstore or library for it. Two Homes (Paperback) by Claire Masurel (Author), Kady Macdonald Denton (Illustrator). Let me know if it helps.
