Naked In The Bath With Someone Else's Child?

My ex-husband and I have two sons, aged 6 and 9. His new girlfriend, who is only 23 (18 years younger), seems to be doing a great job of caring for the children. For that I am grateful. My kids are pretty communicative with me and so when they return from their weekend's "at dad's" they give me the lowdown of what went on. I sincerely am happy they all seem to get along, but apparently last weekend, all the kids got in the bath together WITH their dad's girlfriend. Everyone was naked. Now, I'm not prude, but I couldn't help but feel sick to my stomach. I didn't want to alarm them so I didn't freak out, just said "oh how nice" but inside I was dying. When I recovered from my shock, I said to my boys that I'd be asking their dad to ask his girlfriend to maybe wear a bathing suit next time just so everybody is aware of privacy, but how lucky they were they got to have such bath times at their dad's. My boys agreed. I just feel like 6 and 9 are important ages for boys, and seeing me naked is one thing since I'm their mother... Or am I wrong?
