Re: "dad"

yeah, I would wait. A name isn't what gives the attachment. There is also a good chance their bio-dad will be in and out of the picture a ton anyhow so they may end up with negative feelings towards "dad."

My boys call their step-mom "mommy." Drives me insane but that is what they were taught. She's a good step-mom so in that way Im grateful. But, now her son with my ex is starting to call me "mommy" so I think she understands how confusing it is for kids to have to figure out what to call everyone in their life.
