At this point, it feels much more like I'm the parent bird, however.
I'm providing for everything financially... and I take care of 90% of all the chores that need to be done around the place (when I'm there, of course...) and I have to look after her quite a bit now. Stay after her to shower and pick up after herself, and do her laundry... etc...
So when she gets on me I kind of chuckle a bit...
But I have been spending a lot of time with the girlfriend and her kids... simply because I actually have it to spend at the moment. 2 weeks from now, I'll be flat out again with shows, and they'll be saying they never see me because I'm always working.
I taught them all a bit about D&D yesterday. They seemed to enjoy it... though all we really did was make characters for them, and a sample combat encounter. Barely scratched the surface. And I'm super rusty as a DM. I guess I need to re-read some of the rule books.
I'm my copious spare time, of course...
