Love this post @stepmomhelp you can’t fix crazy. All you can do is be happy, live your life, and laugh at the desperate attempts for attention. Once you realize HCBMs have no place in your home everything gets easier. Make every decision you make about giving your step kids the best possible life and let that drive you 🙌🏽. Keep up the great work fellow step moms! You’re doing great!  #blendedfamily #stepmomconfessions #stepmomproblems #stepmom #highconflictbiomoms #blending #childsupport #stepkids #fathersrights #fathersrightsmovement #stepmomquotes #stepmommy #stepmomstrong

Ain't this about a #stepmom mantra. UGH. Absolute truth. #life itself is all about #processing but being a #stepparent ups that anty. 
1 thing I've learned is that #trainingthemind is essential. Shifting #perspective is encouraged. Any form to assist in #surviving is life altering. 
We sit in the seats that are front row to losing ourselves if we're not careful. .

DAY 20. Give encouragement. .
.
We encourage our babies daily to grow, learn,  and keep trying.  But when I'm doing the dishes and my daughter wants to show me the 17th half colored picture she just made,  sometimes my encouragement goes right down the drain too.  So today,  I'm going to focus on encouraging her in every way I can.. Maybe even to finish 1 picture. 😉

New post is up. I was told over and over not to worry about befriending the bio moms.  Don't even try. It's not worth it.  But it was and still is such an important relationship for me to work on.  I know not every one is able to befriend the BM in their life, and man have I had my struggles between the two in my life.. But it's a work in progress,  eventful,  but rewarding too. .
.
Check it out and let me know about your relationship with BM.  Link in bio 👆 .

Last year I became a mom twice. The first time was the day I said “I do”. A lot of people will say that I had already been a step mom at that point where I was in their lives already for a few years, but things change when you take that official name of step parent. Instead of ‘babysitting’ you are ‘parenting’, outsiders ask more questions when they are step kids instead of ‘boyfriends kids’, you are held to new and often invisible standards, compared and judged for silly things, and the kids themselves see you as a permanent parent. They test you and try your patience. They watch everything to make sure you are in it for the long haul. The second time I became a Mom was when our little Isla Rose was born. Suddenly I was a first time mom of 3 beautiful girls! 
As you can imagine it has been a year of blessings, trials, and growth! I am so very blessed to have so many mothers who have helped me this past year! I couldn’t have done it without YOU!

I’m especially grateful for my Mom who taught me the truthfulness of this quote: “The most important work you will ever do will be within the walls of your own home.” -Harold B. Lee

I’m beyond blessed to be a Mom to these 3 girls! 
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Women in our life! .

I'm gonna drop a little #truthbomb on ya... of course this is just my opinion but you can take what you like and leave the rest.

Tomorrow is Mother's Day. I'm a step mom. Does this make me less of a mother - yes, yes it does. Does that suck sometimes...yup. Does that mean I don't show up to the best of my ability for my step children - NO.

I was making my list of Mother's Day gifts and asking the kids what they want to get for their Mom's because it feels like the right thing to do to me and it just came to me to share - if you are a step mom - find a way to celebrate that with your step kids that doesn't take away from their Mom's. 
I know it's hard to not get your feelings hurt sometimes when you pour into your step kids and don't feel like you are acknowledged enough but you know what - I'm pretty sure being a mom is a pretty thankless job all the time and moms deserve to have a day! 
Stepmom - it doesn't mean the work you put in to give to your step kids doesn't count to not have mothers day be all about you! 
Embrace the specialness of your relationship with your step kids instead of comparing your relationship to theirs with their moms. 
I say all the time part time kids is a pretty cool set up: only do school pick up every other week, can be selfish every other week, half the money and still all the LOVE! 
Ps. NEXT Sunday is #nationalstepmomday maybe use that one to celebrate!

It's DAY 3 MOMMAS!... I had so many ideas of what I wanted to 'teach' my mini today. But then the school called and my little girl has a fever. She's been in bed asleep all afternoon only getting up to use daddy's phone to call me to come hold her. We leave to go on a family trip in 1 day and I have yet to get everything done to  pack and make sure my family and fur babies are all ready To go.  As well as the details finished for my mom's wedding. On top of that my job asked me to stay late for an emergency tonight and mister monster has been begging me all day to do some marketing materials for the new company before we leave... So yes,  I'm stressed. Apparently mini can hear it in my voice,  because she just softly said

.
.
.
and then it hit me. she watches my every move every day. she sees when i pray. she sees when i'm stressed. she sees when no matter what, her and her dad never have to worry because i'll figure it out. she is always watching, and i am always teaching, without knowing. so today i dont get to do the 'challenge' with you guys. but my baby did it for me. she taught me . she reminded me why i do things and that i can do anything.. because.. just say a prayer. so while i rush home after work to hold my mini as she asks.. i want to know what you guys taught your kids today.. or what they taught you. don't be h*****n yourself, they are learning everyday from you, and you are creating little awesome humans whether you know it or not. .

30 DAY CHALLENGE: MOM EDITION
.
.
DAY 2. ✌ Stop being so hard on yourself. Stop comparing yourself to other women.  Stop feeling guilty because your child is crying or they haven't taken a bath in 2 days. Don't stress about how you yelled at them,  or forgot to make class cupcakes until midnight the night before. Don't ruin yourself because you make mistakes.  You are a champ.  You are a warrior! You can do this.  God gave you this job because YOU are who your babies need.  Don't be so hard on yourself. So today's challenge, and it's a hard one for me, is to FORGIVE YOURSELF for not being perfect.  You're human.  You can't be the best mom you were meant to be if you are constantly shaming yourself. Have ice cream for dinner to make memories. Let your toddler wear the costume 3 days in a row to prevent a tantrum.  Your the perfect mom for your kids,  even though you aren't perfect. .
.
.
So today... We forgive ourselves like we want our kids to Forgive themselves.  Drop the weight and fly.  Enjoy life...one mistake and lesson learned at a time 😉💞

Kids deserve to love freely, they are born to love, they don’t know evil or hate. That is taught! Please mothers teach your children to love freely. Love is so pure, children’s pure. Keep the children pure! Stop using your children for your own evil satisfaction! It’s just heartbreaking for everyone in the end!!! 🙏🏻 .

A throwback and a shoutout to all the #stepmoms out there!
For all the times you are asked “are you their REAL mother?” (“Actually, I’m a unicorn.”) 🦄
For loving a child because they are your soulmates too. (Isn’t the definition of unconditional love: that there were no actual conditions placed on it?) 💗
For doing the best you can every damn day to give your kids (yes, they are your kids too!) the best life possible (even if that means volunteering for field day one week after surgery and letting yourself get sunburned and soaked so kids can have sunscreen and dry clothes and you end up eating lunch on the side stairs because you need a break from the crazy, control freak partner you had all day)!!! This one’s for you, because you are selfless and filled with love and the struggle is real af! 👫👯‍♀️🕴🏻 #stepmom #stepmomlife #stepmomconfessions #stepmomstrong #stepmomstruggles #stepmommylife #stepmomgoals #stepmomsunite #stepmommoments #stepmommylove @stepmomquotes @the_stepmom @stepmomside @stepmom_life
