Stating the obvious, here, I know, but feels good saying out loud: Kids bring a whole new thing to relationships. Even after 10 years divorced, my husband's daughters had some weirdness. Generally, things have gone "well," but there are moments of weirdness. For sure. Some games are played, without a doubt. I keep quiet, support my husband. That's my role. Whatever relationship I have with them will come over time - and it will take years, I can see. The grandkids, love comes easy. But those two girls with their walls, it will take a lifetime. I have come to accept that. I just do what I do because I want to and let things happen as they may.
With your own kids, it hasn't been that long, so yes, it will take time.
