I'm crazy about kids. I love being around them. Many times I prefer playing with them to boring adult yadda-yadda. I fancy myself somewhat popular among little people.
That's why I'm super-scared of getting involved in a poly-family with kids, because I think children really need totally reliable adults in their lives. I try very hard not to confuse them. So it's hard to hear comments like 'When is Blackie leaving?' or 'I like Blackie more than grandma'.
Haven't read through the entire thread, but what happens when a poly-family breaks up? What do you say to the kids? How to show them you still love them although you can't come over so often anymore?
