Mr. D moved in over the weekend. We’ve had a couple days of settling in. We’re still unpacking things here and there but this week has generally been a slice of normal day-to-day life.
My son is getting used to Mr. D being there everyday after school. We’ve had family dinner each night and the consistency and routine of family time at the table is so defining. With one child to feed and myself not a high priority, dinner was hit and miss at times. I’d make something simple for the boy and he’d eat on the couch many an evening. He feels the change and I’m happy for it. I love taking care of my new family.
Evenings have been relaxed and enjoyable. Mr. D gets up earlier then us so we’re finding a routine of adult time at his bedtime then I have solo time with my son afterwards for remaining homework and bedtime.
It’s new to have sex in a tiny home with my teenager in the other room but we accomplished it one night so far. It was quiet but still hot and needy. One more variety to add to our repertoire.
All-in-all it’s been a perfect first week together.
