Hi, I have a problem. My ex left me while I was pregnant with my son. He returned for a couple months at the beginning then again when my son was 3. We gave it a try for a year and I ended up pregnant with my daughter during that time.
When my daughter was 3 months (my son was 4 1/2) he left us again. He wants to get back together but I have thought a lot about this and say no its not what’s best for my family. He isn’t even in the state we are and doesn’t see my kids.
I met this great guy over the last year since my ex left and we have gotten very serious. We want a future together. He has done more for me and my kids then their father ever has. But recently my son has been acting out. I didn’t realize why until last night (he is 5 1/2) he yelled at my boyfriend and told him "you aren’t my dad anymore"
It made me remember the other day he called my boyfriend "daddy" like 3 times. My son remembers his dad and struggled when he left, and I don’t tell him this is "his new daddy" like some people do. It’s getting to be too much and I don’t know what to do or how to fix this. My boyfriend wants to be there for my kids. Please help!
