Hey all,
Sorry I've been inactive, the reason being I've been very active lol.

Anyway a question totally non related, to all you fathers, and step fathers out there...

I'm 20 been seeing a new girl for quite a while now (22) who had a little boy (3 1/2) after a while of dating I wanted to and she wanted me to meet jack, the son. Jack lives with his grandma and grandpa as my gf is at uni. I have a full time bar job often working late nights. I live at home and she lives in student accomodation.

Next year we are looking to rent a place in my home town, where she is at uni, and bringing jack to live with us.

He has never had a dad figure around... When I met him he blanked me, wouldn't look at me and hid for the first few hours but by the end we were playing Lego, we went bowling and he would hold my hand when walking on the pavement and we could have a good chat (well, what I could understand anyway)

My question is... WHAT THE HELL DO I DO??????????

I've never looked after infants. Cooked for them. There will be times my gf will be at uni il have to get him ready for school feed him, take him to school, pick him up, bring him home, feed him before I go to work and his mum returns...

Thanks in advance

feed them and check for poop. At that age they do just about everything on their own but cook and wipe their butts well.

Put him up for adoption and keep the mom all to yourself.

If there is anything I've learned from having five kids it's that any idiot can do it if you truly care for them. If you don't care you're going to be a crap parent/guardian, if you really love them, want what's best for them, you will figure it out.

The feet go at the bottom, generally.
