Hello Steppers

Having been a Lone Parent for many years this is all a little strange but here goes....
Hello all, Smile
My OH has moved in with me and my 2 girls, and his 3 (my God daughters) are visiting us for the school holidays and for special occasions (he is having some issues with his ex over what is reasonable time for him to see them).

Apart from the poor man having 6 girls/women to contend with it's all going well. All the children get on (mostly) and we have enough bicycles to go round. 

We're hoping to see more of his girls over the next months/years, but at the moment everything is new and we're just taking it slowly.

Quite the best way to take it.  My goodness that man is heavily out-numbered!!

My stepson was 1 when I met my OH, he's never lived with us but has obviously been with us for holidays and weekends.  He is 13 now.
I think perhaps him being so young helped, I did more of the practical care for him when he was a baby/toddler than his dad did and he just grew up knowing that this is the way it was.   My girls did go through phases of jealously towards him though (they were 4 and 8 at the time) but mostly things have gone great.

Wishing you lots of love and luck.
