So still in the planning phases of combining into a three-person family-type unit (SO and SD6 are moving into new house on Saturday and I will rent my place and move in by summertime). Spending lots of quality time with SD6 and really starting to enjoy her. We're settling into a nice little relationship.
On Sunday I told her that I'm looking forward to visiting her at the new house. I asked what she thought about that. She said, "You can visit ANYTIME. I wish we lived next door to you so that we could see you all the time". SIGH. That kid sure knows how to pull on my heartstrings but boy, did it make me feel all warm and fuzzy.
Now I KNOW that someone out there is going to say "just wait til.... xyz happens". I know. I get it. It's not always going to be sunshine and puppies. But for now, I'm really enjoying getting to know this little girl who is so very loved by the man I love.
