I'm going to have to agree with the other ladies here...
I definitely think it should be your son's choice.
I knew DSD since she was 1. And one day when I was changing her
diaper, she pointed at me and said, "NANA". I thought she wanted a
banana....Ever since then, she's called me that and she's now 6 years old.
When her mom started dating a new guy, after like 1 month, supposedly
DSD wanted to call him daddy. Which, really hurt DH's feelings.
She'd get confused as to who was her "real" daddy. Now she's not
dating him and is with someone new but DSD won't call new guy daddy.
I think the choice needs to be left to the child. Whatever they feel
comfortable calling the step-parent...just my opinion.
