New Here

I have just joined this week, I hope to post a lot and get to know a lot more moms and maybe hopefully find out i am not in such a unique weird situation. Maybe other moms or step moms can relate.

        Thanks everyone!! I am just a step mom. I started dating my bf about 5 years ago and even though we have been off and on I always been there for the kids.

          I have a step-daughter but I call her my own because I love and treat her as such. :)
          I don't like the term "step." I am glad you joined on on here.

            I dont have any kids of my own. Dylan and Destiny dont see their birth mother at all and actually call her by her name and not mom. Unfortunately they know what kind of person she is but we have done our best to be real with them and be honest with them. Even though they are too young in the courts eyes to make their own descions we have always let them decide when and if they talk to her. She has shown up at our house and they have refused to see her and she called the sheriff and even he told them and her he cant nor would he make them see her. Since then she has made no attempt to see them or talk to them.

              oh poor little guys but I agree with one of the other moms . my kids knew not the word step either. or half . my kids are halves but they better not let mom catch them saying {youre just my half} no no no . being honest is the best they will respect you later for it.

                Thank you Carlene razo! Its definately the hardest thing i have ever done. Their father and i have broken up a few times but are currently together. But each time I am there for them as much as I can be. I have been "mom" for 5 years and will always be for that matter. As silly as it sounds the movie clueless says it best you divorce wives not children.

                  it is so true about the movie but I can say from personal experience they will love you so much because in all the stuff going on around them they always know that they have you and that is a great feeling. those are the little things people criticize me about. I have 12 nieces and nephews on my husbands side but I detest how they treat and are raising these kids, to make a long story short I had to let it go. But anytime the little guys need me I am gone. Only there for the kids and how some of the adults have treated me {not liking that the kids now adore me} I just say look you need my help o.k. but understand I am here for those kids not you. it usually works pretty well. And me and the kids have so much fun. When they cant figure something out or don't know what to do it is sad for me but they come find me. I love them all.
