Love them like my own

NFL player Tom Brady has a child from a previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan. When Brady dated his then girlfriend Giselle Bundchen, I remember reading a comment from Bundchen about Brady’s son:

“I understand that he has a mom, and I respect that, but to me it’s not like because somebody else delivered him, that’s not my child. I feel it is, 100 percent. I want him to have a great relationship with his mom, because that’s important, but I love him the same way as if he were mine.”

Now I thought it was a noble and endearing perspective to take, but after talking to a couple of real parents, it seemed to strike a nerve. If you have children, wouldn’t you want the person your ex is dating (seriously) to care for your child as if they were your own?

Have you ever dated someone with children and became close to their children? Did it cause a problem with their parent because you were too close?

Have you ever been in a relationship with someone who treated your children like their own? Isn’t that a little litmus test to see if the person is compatible to you and your kids, since you are a package deal?

Is there a line that one should not cross when it comes to dealing with someone who has children in terms of parenting them? What would you say are the boundaries? Do you set those ground rules with your significant other and their children?

Yes…consistency is best. I agree. I can truly appreciate a person being who they truly are…as long as they know which one it is…be it jaded or gullible, a beast in the sheets or a plain Jane…just pick one already and go with that.

I went recently to Folks recently and it was my first time since they were “Po”. 22 years to be exact. The gizzards were pretty good. The Peach muffins were great, but small.

For some reason, the dance floor action ain’t sounding sexy At All to me. Skanky, yeah…

Package store got me for awhile, but RED DOT & ABC had me sober for the longest! I’m used to a set of initials (let’s say C&J) with the wordd Liquours right behind it…

That is good to know. I tried to get something that I can’t get at home. My wife is a yankee and won’t cook gizzards. She cooks pork chops all of the time.

PoppaG I didn’t know they had those. Folks/Ryan/Golden Corral are all on the same scale to me. Good place to take growing little boys after they’ve played at amusement parks all day.
