Happy Thanksgiving! On Friday I will meet her three children, and she will meet my three children, and they will meet each other. Her and I with six children ages 4-8 visiting a museum and having lunch! What an amazing journey! :)

Throw in a housekeeper named Alice and you've got the Brady Bunch

Seriously though, Happy Thanksgiving and much luck to you both.

Every time I see this thread at the top of this section-it brings a smile. Thank you Traildad and Lady Friend for sharing your new beginning with us.

Happy Thanksgiving, enjoy your time together at the museum.

Hi. I've been lurking here for some time and this thread is one of the most heart-warming I've read. and I'm really happy for you guys!

However, I wonder if it's too soon for kids to get involved? You have been seeing each other for "only" 3-4 months, and I've heard people/psychologists recommend waiting 6-12 months...

Happy holidays and good luck in any case!:)

We've certainly heard every Brady Bunch reference you can think of! :) Today was a good day! A nice, casual meet-up at a museum to visit with Santa and have some lunch. It was a nice, low-pressure way to meet each others' kids and break the ice. Everyone had a good time. We have a beautiful picture of all six children standing in front of a Christmas tree. A very cool day. Wonderful to see her in her main role as a mother. She's fantastic.

The kids do not know her and I are dating, although the more insightful ones may suspect it. If asked directly we would tell the truth, but for now we treated this outing as if we were friends only. We will keep things casual like this for now, and let things develop naturally.

I took a chance in the checkout lane ... and here I am almost five months later, I couldn't be happier. Our kids have met and know we are dating. We had a fantastic holiday season together. My life changed completely because of that one chance encounter. Before I met her I would've laughed if you told me I could possibly fall in love again anytime soon. Now, here I am, falling for her more and more each day.

Six months ago yesterday I took a chance. I had no idea it would lead to all of this. I am incredibly thankful for this wonderful woman in my life. :)

Glad to see your update! Sometimes life tosses us someone wonderful and says "Here....catch!". It did for me and seems like it did for you, too.
