Here's the other part that sticks out to me. You don't get involved with a woman who has kids and you especially don't move them in with you and offer to be the sole income provider unless you plan on being a provider and semi or fully depending on the circumstances a parental figure. Your girlfriend quits her job, guess who's Santa now?
I think he does. Other father told her she can ask her new boyfriend to help her. I think she was just trying to see of the dads would fork it out first before she had her boyfriend cough it up. My MIL and her mother chipped in on SDs birthday gift in the form of an iPod.
