Had another convesation about stepdads.

Last night, Kayden told me he had a dream that Josh and I got remarried and he was sad when he woke up.

We talked for a while about it. I explained about depression and reminded him of how Josh never wanted to go anywhere or do anything with us. Kayden tends to be like me, in that he idealizes the past.

I also talked about how he likes his new stepmom much better than his last and it'll be the same way with a new stepdad. (Of course, I have no intentions of actually ever marrying again, but I didn't want to explain that to him.) I reassured him that I would never marry someone he didn't really like.

I feel really bad for him right now.
