So, I'm a single father with full custody of my seven year old daughter and aside from Skype calls her mother is not in the picture. Today my daughter asked me quite seriously if I plan on remarrying.
I told her honestly that I wasn't sure and if I do it will be in a few years after things are more settled. We are currently doing OK, but I want to move to a nearby city in two or three years, where the dating options, after school activities, and opportunities will be better.
She understood my answer but I'm not sure if she was happy with it. I tried to get her to tell me if she wanted me to remarry and she told me to not ask her that.
I'm honestly not sure if she thinks I'll put her aside so I can get married (never happen, I put up with four years of hell to ensure I got full custody) or if she wants me to so she can have a mommy. Or she could just be curious and my asking her for her thoughts annoyed her.
Anyone have some ideas on this one? Google has failed me.
My daughter asked me this question again, so I told her that I needed a girlfriend first, and that I would make sure she knows all about my plans before I do anything.
After a minute or two, she asked if she could be the flower girl. So I guess that that problem is solved.
