I have a 6 year old and a 1 year old with the same man. We split up when our son was 1 and after 2 years I started seeing another man and we lived together for 2 years. When my son was 4 his father requested a DNA test even after he signed the birth certificate to try to hget out of child support. I willingly went along with this and when the results came in that he was the father of our son he asked to see him, so I willingly let him see our son (with me there of course). My ex then proceded to try to win me back and said he wanted us to be a family and i foolishly believed him so I broke up with the man I was with to try to make my family work with my childs father. Well it didnt work and an ex is an ex for a reason, anyways I ended up pregnant with our second child and he bailed. So I went through the pregnancy alone. I kept my house so that was good. I remained friends with the man I broke up with and when the baby was born we ended up getting back together. Long story short this man has been there since my daughter was born and he treats her life she is his. She has never met her father as he refuses to even acknowledge she is his. Now my daughter is 14 months old and is starting to call this man dada, which is ok by him and me but i am just wondering is this ok or will it confuse my othert child who knows that he is not their father?
