Finally: The Wedding Date’s Kids

By the time Friday afternoon rolls around, I’m kind of freaking out about meeting The Wedding Date’s kids.  What if they don’t like me?  What if we have nothing to talk about?  What if they think I’m lame or terrible at board games?  And, worst of all, what if my relationship with their dad doesn’t work out?  There’s nothing to indicate that it won’t, but if it doesn’t, I’m going to have to say goodbye to The Wedding Date and his kids and kids, I’m pretty sure, are way worse than dogs. Fortunately, I work at a school where blended families are the norm, rather than the exception.  So I poll my co-workers and discover that just about every last one of them has been through this before.  The general consensus is to be friendly but don’t be their friend.  Be an adult.  Be an adult.
