Tomorrow I'm meeting my boyfriend's 5 year old son for the first time. Any advice? We are going to hang out at a day campground by a lake.

Bringing him a little gift (ask your boyfriend what he likes) might work, but know you will likely be rejected, at best, at first! he won't understand at that age, and the best thing is to introduce yourself, maybe offer that little gift, but don't be offended if he rejects it, and you, at first. Be patient, and just be there. At some point, he will need help, or have some crisis, and his dad won't be there. If you are, and make it 'all better' you are TOTALLY IN!!
It takes a lot of time with kids.
I've known my little nephew since before he could even figure out who I was. Still, sometimes, he just ignores me, because I am not mom or dad.
Just recently, he has started to like some 'science' things, and his dad has told him that I KNOW SCIENCE!!
He called me 'Uncle Science Dave' last time!! Oh. . . has to make your heart melt!!0

Hey firstly good luck and I thought from experience hang back don't try to hard let him be with daddy and you are more a presence in the background, please don't be offended by this advice. At five he's only used to his mum really, obviously I don't know how long the parents were together if long enough he remembers them together even more important. It's tough your situation but you obviously care a lot to be on here so well done you, take time and just let him come to you and this may take some time xx0
