I've got a question

My son is going to be nine months old on the 16th and my sons father and I aren't together. So one day my son turned and looked at my boyfriend and called him daddy. What do I do?

I say if you and your boyfriend are ok with it and you think your relationship might become permanent then just let the boy call him daddy. But if either of you are uncomfortable with it then next time your son calls your boyfriend daddy just correct him by saying "that's Bob not Daddy". I was in a similar situation where my daughter kept calling my dad (her grandpa) "dada" I just corrected her each time and it took about 2-3 months before she started calling him "pappy" instead.

What exactly did your boyfriend think of that? Honestly, with ur son being so young still. I'd wait until he's a little older to at least let him know, ya know? But again, It takes a REAL MAN to step up to the plate. Ur sons biological father apparently wasn't that. It takes more than a mans sperm to be a father as well. And i believe a man willing to take in not only the woman but her child. That's one wonderful person right there. :)
