Pirate Jim

Today, I brought home my new boyfriend, who happens to have an eyepatch. Despite repeatedly telling them not to, even threatening punishment, my daughters, ages 9 and 11, would not stop calling him "Cyclops." He’s mad at me for this. FML

I really hope he is mature enough to understand they are kids and it's to be expected. In his position I would have leaned into it and played the role of pirate and we all could have a laugh. How you handle unfortunate circumstances can dictate a lot. Make the best of what you have and you will be a much happier person.

Coming from kids he shouldn't be too upset about it.

This would be a red flag for me. Kids say rude stuff. Adults have to be mature enough to handle it in a calm and rational manner. His anger is not how you handle it.
