Yesterday my son started asking questions about my "real dad". I have never talked to my kids about him before. He left us when I was just a baby and if I saw him out in public I probably wouldn't even recognize him (because it has been that long since I have seen him). Yesterday we was having thanksgiving (late I know) but my 9 year old son was asking when my dad was going to come and why I don't ever see him. I haven't even talked to my 5 year old daughter about it before, she thinks that my stepdad is my dad and she calls him paw paw. I just don't want to confuse them. I am divorced and they still can't understand how there dad is still there dad even though me and him arn't married any more and they don't understand when I tell them that their step mom isn't there mom, that I am there "real mom". I guess I am just not good at explaining things.
