Am I over thinking things when it comes to my ex's girlfriend?

My kids father just lost his wife to cancer this last summer. It was hard on everyone. He now is dating a woman that he just meet through the computers few weeks ago. He slept with her the first night they actually meet and now a week later, he's having the kids meeting her during his visitation. She made them supper and bought them gifts already. I feel it is moving too quick and somewhat making it artificial. She has her own kids and she left them home because they are older. Am I wrong for questioning this?

The ex doesn't unfortunately think that way or that far in the future. One of the many reasons for being an ex.

My younger boy thinks she is great, mostly because of the stuff. My teen said he wants to sit back and see what else she is going to do. They both said she was really nice to them. I just can't help question why she is acting this way and buying my kids stuff, when she really should be home with her own kids at night?!

I did not read carefully...you kids just lost their step mom this summer? Yikes this is fast! It may be what he needs to push through the pain, but I don't think it is what the kids need. Maybe he can keep her private for awhile until he is positive she is going to be around.

No, you are not wrong, I think it is moving fast. I don't know how old your kids are but if they grow attached to her and the relationship ends, they will have to handle that loss. What did your kids think?
