Hello all! I am band new to this forum. My name is Jenn and I am the mother of a 10 yer old daughter, Elizabeth and a 14 year old son, Scottie. I have been divorced from their father for almost 4 years and with my fiance for the last 2 years. While my kids love their father, and he is
part of their lives, he is not hands on. He is "Disney Dad." Until Charlie, I have done 95% of the parenting.
My fiance, Charlie, has been living with us for a year now. He has gloriously taken on his role as step father (he has no children.) He is their daily male figure/role model. He is the one helping with homework, when I can't. Enforcing the chore rules I have posted, when I am not here, and playing referee when the kids are at each other's throats. So, pretty much, an equal parent. The kids love and respect him, greatly. He is truly a blessing that I thank God for every day.
Here is my issue: I would like to do something special for Charlie for Father's Day, but since we are not married yet, step dad items, are not an option. Does anyone have any ideas for "almost a step dad" gifts? I know he won't be expecting anything, but I also know that he would welcome the acknowledgement of all that he does.
Thank you SO much for your time.
