hi I'm new

Hey everyone. I joined because I'm very new at this, and everything just got real. I've been dating this man for 2 years now. We just got engaged a few months ago. Shortly after I lost my full time job (still have part time) and he asked me to stay home with his 5 year old daughter. To put this in prospective, we met online. He mentioned he had a daughter (who is absolutely wonderful). I wasn't going to give him the time of day, because I never wanted kids. Still don't want any of my own. We met in person on accident. We never meant to meet each other but fate decided otherwise. So I guess I'm looking for support in raising this little girl. I catch myself being very strict and I don't want to be that kind of step mom. I back off when I catch myself. I don't know how to "play". Growing up I always hung around the older kids and mostly boys. My step daughter is a princess. She cries if she gets mud on her leg! Mud is one of my favorite things! So I'm at a loss of how to entertain this little girl! Help!

No, my fiancé has primary custody but time is split 50/50. Even tho OW is breaking divorce contact and I've been pushing to take her back to court for full custody. Just never pictured myself as a mom.

Well looks like you are now though right?
Is she in school yet?

No she starts this fall. Summer I'm sure will be easier. Here in Montana it's to cold to go outside and play
