Engaging Your Superior Colliculus Since Sometime In The Past

Aiden has now “officially” moved in with us. He has basically been living here for the past two weeks, but yesterday he gave notice to his landlords, and we fetched a bunch of his things from his apartment.
While we were in town we had dinner with his parents, and he let them know that he is moving in with me. They weren’t exactly surprised, since he forewarned them in October that he was looking for a job where I live. I think that they like me enough that they don’t really mind him moving over an hour away, especially since they know we will visit as often as we can.
During the course of the conversation, Aiden’s mum mentioned us bringing the kids over for a visit sometime in the future. His parents are aware of the kids, but they think I’m divorced, and don’t know that I live with anyone. I expected that at some point they would want to meet my children, but I’m not really certain how to handle that situation. Aiden just wants to roll with it and see how it goes. If the kids make any remarks that raise questions, he will handle them, but I’m not a fan of being put on the spot. More on that when it happens.
It’s been nice having Aiden around all the time. We still have to move the bulk of his stuff, and his room is a disaster, but there really isn’t any rush. He has until the end of February to relocate all of his possessions. Transitions are never perfect of course, and we’ve rubbed each other the wrong way a couple of times already, but co-habitating with a new person always requires an adjustment process. We are still working out some of the minor details, like where I spend the night. The current sleeping schedule is alternating nights, which we are trying out for the time being, and if that doesn’t work I think we’ll try a 3-and-3 rotation.
The kids are quite thrilled that Aiden is here to stay, although they are slowly learning that while he’s super fun, he also won’t put up with disrespect or misbehaviour on their part. He doesn’t mind babysitting either, which has allowed Jack and I to go out on a date, for the first time in ages.
In the chaos of moving and car shopping and all manner of other craziness we’ve been up to, the Dom/sub aspect of our relationship has been pushed onto the back burner, although I doubt that will last long. Our contract comes up for renewal on February 4th, so more on that as we work out details and adjustments.
For now we are just getting into a reasonable routine and rhythm with an extra body in the house. Much, much more to come on how exactly it’s all working out.
