I just don't know. This is a delicate situation. I think keeping communication open and listening to his concerns is helpful. My son is doing well in this situation and bears no ill will to the baby's father. I think his feelings get a little hurt, as mine do, to think that someone is looking for something to get upset about. I hope I'm handling things property. I feel like I am, but some things are just out of my control.

My children are all happy, and seem to be well-adjusted. I wish I hadn't brought this stranger into their lives, but without him, they wouldn't have their sister. I am expecting that we will be able to coexist peacefully for the most part, and occasional conflicts are to be expected in any relationship.

Baby's dad and I had a recent discussion and I think he understands that I'm standing with my kids 100% and as much as I want to be accomodating to him, my kids are my first priority. Hopefully, there will be more trust from here on out.
