Dating a single mom with three kids
They may have some ketchup or other undistinguishable stains on their sleeves that they didn’t notice. This is totally normal and something you will eventually find to be very sexy.

Trust me, they don’t want to be and they did their best not to be, but there is just not *quite* enough time in any day to get it all done.
Sometimes, it is everything they can do to get out the door to come see you in the first place. Next, you should know that they will probably not want to take you back to their place for quite some time. 1) they really don’t want their kids meeting any new person in their life until they are sure it is going to last a long while.

Matters are so peachy that she even shared me on a Google Calendar she, her boyfriend, and my boyfriend share re: who has chief parenting duties when (it's half-and-half, really).
