    “First fall to Hulk Herman! But don’t count Maria the Mauler out yet. She’s small, but wirey!”

    Ha! Every parent should do this! When we have a babysitter, I make a point of telling my kids that the babysitter is in charge and they must do whatever she says. Hopefully it helps.

    Of course, living with kids that aren’t mine, I hear Maria’s line a fair amount around here. Yet I never try to play rule maker nor disciplinarian. I suspect they’re just wary. If Mommy marries her boyfriend, what will he become? All I can say is: her husband. The kids still have a Dad who lives not that far away.

    But you’re actually in the home. You can’t call Biological Dad every time a crisis hits. Granted,kids have a right to be wary for the exact reason you state. The news has been full of evil stepfathers lately,and you’ll have to walk a very thin tightrope for awhile before you can fully gain your kids’ trust and attain the mantle of “Trustworthy Dad for Life”. In the meantime,just be good,kind,fair and loving,and just do right by your new family and things will work out. Good luck to you.

    I suppose most of the time I feel more like chauffeur and cook. Well, I don’t mind that. I love cooking, and why wouldn’t I jump in where help is needed? The kids are both very talented and bright- just high maintenance.

    … the smallness makes it easier for her to slip between the ropes. Will be harder to get her on the ropes.

    I know my kids are high maintenance……….and you do a wonderful job as their chauffeur. Although I hate to think that it seems that way to you. Your ability to step in when I’m not around is a huge help to me. Some day Lia and David will appreciate all that you do for us!

    I don’t mind. I’m glad to jump in and feel like part of a family again. I was too long on my own before, so I appreciate the difference! And I’ll gladly do what helps you and makes you happy. <3 xxxooo
