If your kids have a Step Dad or Step Mom what do they call them?
I am remarried and so is my ex so my oldest DS has a step mom and a step dad. Currently his calls my DH by his first name and he calls my Exs wife by her first name but with Miss in front of it.
DS has slipped and called my DH dad but he corrected himself. Granted the kid has also slept and called me Dad and my ex Mom. Kids get confused whether their parents are married or not.
Both my ex and I are having new babies with our new spouses.
Several people have asked me what DS is going to call DH once put new baby is here or if DS was ever going to call DH dad. I've always said that DS has a Dad that is in his life.
However a few people doesn't seem to think that it matters and that with us having a new baby DS should call DH some thing less formal than his name. Maybe not Dad but less formal so it's not confusing.
I have no idea what that would be. Honestly I would be pretty pissed if DS started calling my Exs wife Mom or even some varriation of mom.
