High five to all you mommas out there! Raise your hand if you are a hard working momma! In the comments. Because I was a momma this weeejend for our 16 year old while she came to visit. And man - she’s self sufficient and it still felt exhausting! So props to all you mommas out there who take care of your babies. And work. And manage to find time for yourself. I truly understand now what it’s like - and why so many mommas end up putting their needs last - because the babies come first. Im no expert but I think that it should be reversed and mommas need to put themselves first before the babies. So that you can feel your best. But I get it. So I’m throwing my sweaty selfie out to all you mommas and honestly giving you so much credit! #breakingbod #mommatime #stepmomproblems #stepmomconfessions #nevermissamonday #keepingaroutineistough #imtired #wheresspellcheck

When you’re feeling good AFTER eating goldfish as a snack. Does that ever happen?! Nope! But when a girl is hungry and didn’t prepare right. You eat what’s around. That’s why I preach a Sunday prep day, but since I decided spending time with family and plugging into the business for a few hours - I lost track of time. But I didn’t let it derail me like normal. I stopped letting excuses and phone calls interrupt my time. I got my workout in, and I made a delicious lunch. (Okay I just finally heated it up!) this girl has goals before my 30th. I turn 30 in 5 months and 18 days, and I refuse to feel how I went into my birthdays in my twenties. Trying to find clothes that fit me. Hiding outside of pictures. Nope this year is about a #betterme, and I am more than happy to help you find your better you!

Being a stepmom has been a really rough journey for me. But yesterday I realized that I’m still going to love you even tho your mother will always tell you to hate me. Love will always win at the end.... every visit my heart gets a little bruised, but at the end your teaching me to be stronger. Yesterday you made me feel so special when all you wanted to do was to be right by my side, hold hands, and giggle at all the silly things your Daddy does. #yesterdaysstory #stepmomconfessions #stepbystep #illbehereforyou

Guys my mom and dad are moving to Europe and I can't believe it's finally happening. I owe so much of who I am to this amazing woman right here. She helped me unearth who I really am when so many others wanted to bury it with expectations about the kind of woman I SHOULD be. I'm forever grateful the last few years of our relationship have been so amazing, and so grateful for her ability to see my potential and true self. Some moms are amazing because they do a job that was never expected of them. #stepmomconfessions #stepmomloveisreal #stepparentsrock

Let’s talk transporting stepkids for activities with bio mom/dad. Transportation is a slippery slope and if it involves large amounts of money, I HIGHLY recommend to always stick to the custody agreement even if it is local transportation.  In our case bio mom has the weekends but when she moved away to a different state, she gets to see the kids on the other periods of time stipulated in the agreement. Anything outside of that like, spring break or a random weekend that she decides she wants to see them, it is on her.  Every single time she wants them to come and visit her she tries to have husband pay for half the tickets (it’s three kids) and tries to get him to pay for whatever activities she wants to do. She cannot afford them but she promises them to kids to then make hubby look bad. Thankfully we have the agreement and as soon as husband mentions that she calls him all kinds of names.  We just save all the texts as evidence. So stick to your custody agreement.

When you have to explain to 41 yrs old bio Mom why it is not ok for a 14 yrs old to:
• lie to her father about where she would be
• not come home when she said she would and us worrying terribly.
• go to a boy’s house in a completely different town and us finding when hubby had to interrogate her.
• and have her call us 2 hrs later at night to tell her dad all this.
Then you understand why we are having the issues we are having with stepdaughter. Bio mom’s answer was “so what if she didn’t tell you?” 🤦🏻‍♀️ Of course, stepdaughter is having to  deal with the reality that once you break the trust, it’s really hard to get it back. And she’s not liking it one bit. .

And I mention it because we  never know what makes a kid tick like this. So for now we say a prayers for the young generation with an entire life ahead of them. We pray for those who want to hurt others so there is a change of in their hearts and minds. Because nobody should “get used to” shootings. Stay strong Parkland, FL. #parkland #florida

This picture reminds me of a pivotal time in my motherhood.

As a stepmother, or as a stepparent in general, something that seems so small can be so BIG in our minds. Naturally, we almost feel like an outsider simply because we have no DNA in the mix. Growing up my Dad always reminded me to Thank my step mom for things and tell her I loved her, and I did, and I did love her. I never thought much of it until I became a step mom myself and I told Emerson I loved him one day out of habit, and he said “alright”. I’m not ashamed to admit, it pissed me off.

I had that “ah ha” moment because I realized why my Dad had been reminding to do those small things over the years. Those small things are SO big to us. Loving your parents is a part of life, loving your step parents seems like a choice. So when he said “alright” it cut deep. If I was his Mom I would have brushed it off knowing that little brat loved me, but being his step mom, I take everything to heart still. 
But those little moments also are what keeps me going. During our vacation this summer, we were all out swimming in the ocean, including my husband. Emerson loves to swim and loves the ocean. A wave splashed up and got in his eyes, and we all know salt water in the eyes sings like a bee. He started jumping, and said “Tia I need you, I need you” it almost brings tears to my eyes thinking back to the moment. His Daddy was right there and he needed me. Those 4 little words meant to much to me. At a time when he was in pain and needed help he wanted me, and all was right in my world again, because that’s all we ever want as a Step Parent right? To be needed.

One of the best compliments I could ever receive is, and one I get often is, “I didn’t even know he was your stepson. If you hadn’t said anything I would’ve thought he was yours.” I don’t share this to be conceited or to make any bio mom’s sad,  jealous, mad, or even make them feel like I’m trying to take their place. 
I take this as a compliment because I am loving a child so fiercely and passionately that people assume I gave birth to him. Isn’t that amazing? Wouldn’t you feel blessed or appreciative if every time your child was away from you there with was another person loving them just as passionately as you do?Do I think accepting a new spouse is easy? Hell no! But what should be easy is accepting your children’s village. 
The amount of people that love my stepson, scratch that, Son, is amazing. What a blessing it is to be a part of my village.

Training your teenager to “fake cry” and recite a scripted “apology” without taking responsibility for her actions in order to get what she wants is low and so damaging to the child.  When a teenager (or any child) tries to negotiate with words like “Dad if you let me do this, I’ll do whatever you want... look at me, I am even crying” and still does not admit to what he did, you are teaching that you can play with people’s feeling and you are teaching her to be fake in order to get what she wants. Congratulations, bio mom— you’re projecting and teaching your child your bad behaviors.

Alright stepmommas, let’s talk fitness and wellness. I have found that fitness keeps me sane. Actually the stress of the past two and half years has caused me to gain weight and retain it even though I’ve been working out.  Since January I’ve been training for a half marathon and doing more strength training. I need the sweat and the push of this type of exercise. /// HOW DO YOU STAY FIT?

I’m so proud of my village. I come from a family of 5 brothers. My village has always been the men in my life; brothers and my husband. My mom was always a single mother, so I was left home a lot to care for my younger brothers. Being a mother always came so natural to me. I owe that to my brothers. Thank you for letting me do “it” wrong and still loving me. And to my husband, thank you for never making me feel like I am not a real mother and if anything, always reminding me that I am a real mother.

Praying— I’ve been doing a lot of that and simple conversations with God. Not only for our family but for the protection on my husband. I’m seriously concerned that the ex and SD will try to harm him— physically. You see the ex doesn’t care about my husband; but there is money involved. Not for her but for the kids in the form of child support (if they went to live with her) but also investment and trust funds. Call it a gut feeling but I worry. I spoke with my husband last night about this concern and because I think we should somehow request that the ex gets a mental health evaluation before she sees the kids again during spring break. Because only a disturbed person would work on her daughter like she is without seeing the consequences of this psychological warfare she playing with SD. So if you have some time, please include us in your prayers. And if you have advise on how to request a mental health evaluation, feel free to comment below. Thanks •

Praying— i’ve been doing a lot of that and simple conversations with god. not only for our family but for the protection on my husband. i’m seriously concerned that the ex and sd will try to harm him— physically. you see the ex doesn’t care about my husband; but there is money involved. not for her but for the kids in the form of child support (if they went to live with her) but also investment and trust funds. call it a gut feeling but i worry. i spoke with my husband last night about this concern and because i think we should somehow request that the ex gets a mental health evaluation before she sees the kids again during spring break. because only a disturbed person would work on her daughter like she is without seeing the consequences of this psychological warfare she playing with sd. so if you have some time, please include us in your prayers. and if you have advise on how to request a mental health evaluation, feel free to comment below. thanks • • • • #pray #godisgood #blessed #stepmom #family #stepparenting #blendedfamily #stepmotherhood #stepkids #stepchildren #stepmomproblems #marriage #stepdaughter #stepmomlife #stepmomconfessions #stepmother #highconflictbiomoms #stepmomtribe

Often, Stepparenting feels a lot like working at a late-night convenience store...all of the responsibility and none of the authority.
