How to explain "stepdad" to 4yr old daughter?

Jessica - posted on 11/23/2012 ( no moms have responded yet )




I have a 4yr old daughter. Her biological father has never been in her life, so she has never known a father figure except for Grandpa and uncles. I've explained to her and she seems to grasp the fact, that not everyone has a daddy just like not everyone has a mommy etc. I've been with my current bf for a while and although he has no kids of his own he is doing a great job adjusting and trying to be there for both of us. My daughter asked me a question that sparked a convo about dads/step-dads. I'm not sure how I should explain to her that it's OK to see him as a dad bc he loves her like she is his.
