I have a pretty good relationship with my SS16 and SD13. We all get along in our home its a pretty go with the flow atmosphere. Now my husband and I are wanting a child together. I worry about how the Skids will label the new edition. They label me their step mother and I am totally fine with that. The SS16 tends to quickly put that label in his mouth before I can get it out. It bothers me every now and then, but I understand, I never want him to feel that I am trying to take his BM place. I have always told them that from the beginning they know I am here to help guide them, love their father, and etc. The SD13 is all about calling me by my name or her SM. Again that is fine, it don't bother me. I would rather them call me whatever is comfortable to them regardless to how it makes me feel. I have always went at their pace with things. Now when I get pregnant how do I approach the Skids labeling their bro/sis as half brother or half sister. I really don't know how to approach this. What is everyone else's take on this? If you have been through it can you please tell me what worked with you?
I have my own thoughts but would like to get different aspects.
