As a recently divorced police officer, and new to the dating scene, I was thrilled but slightly intimidated to be dating a lovely woman with a young daughter.
Parenting was new to me, however, and it constantly tripped me up. One evening, as I belted the little girl into her safety seat, she shocked me by asking, "Do you and mommy kiss?"
I stalled for time, looking to her mother for clues, and I asked, "Uh, well, uh, why do you ask, honey?" to which the little angel replied, with her nose crinkled in disgust, "Mommy and BOB do!"
Guess I'm not the only one tripped up by parenting…
