Spooky dinner time lol... these kids are so funny sometimes! But I super love them. We’ve had a really good day, and considering how much of a rollercoaster I’ve felt like I’ve been on, today was a good day. They work really hard during during the week at school and deserve an evening of fun, with some pizza and tasty beverages and lemon pudding for dessert. Excited for what tomorrow brings!! #singlemomconfessions #stepmomconfessions #momlife #themotherhood #ilovemykids #spooky #dinnertime #kaiandkarlee

I N  T H E  B E G I N N I N G - I had no idea what I was doing. I had no idea what was happening and where it was going. I had no idea how great of a love this would be. I had no idea how hard this would be and how equally easy it would become. I had no idea what this role meant and what it would entail. I had no idea that becoming a family would be my greatest adventure yet my hardest journey but the most rewarding at the end of every day. #wickedstepmom .

Big brother hasn’t been too kind to his little sister this week. I’ve chalked it up to him processing the change in routine, and the constant transitions of having a (sassy) little sister. So when he willingly offers to play with her or help her finish her snack, my heart just explodes. I have so many hopes for these two. ❤️

Anyone else feel like this? I used to allll the time, like nothing I did or said was ever enough to connect with my SD. Eventually I realized that the best thing I could do for our relationship was to disengage: take a step back, and accept that she wasn't *ready* to connect with me yet.⠀
.⠀
Today, our house is completely different. Less stress, less tension, less silent resentment directed right at me. Our relationship is far from perfect, but bit by bit we are finally finding our way.💖⠀

One day my church group asked what was one thing that brought you closer to God? One thing that made you dig deeper? And it was clear to me- my Mini.  My life was no longer just about me,  and I needed God's help. 💕 ⛪ .

Step Mother: One who does all the things a biological mom does but is degraded regardless of how great she is. She loves and cares for another women’s children with all she is, while putting her happiness second. She invests her heart and soul into children she did not carry because her love is a choice. She sustains mistreatment yet in her heart she knows she is in this position for a reason and stands steadfast in her battle. She is portrayed as being “evil” or a “monster” yet she is not here to take your place, just to love your children. Her heart is over joyed with words and emotions when those children put their little hands on her face and kiss her good night. Tears come to her eyes when she thinks of the thoughts of them growing up and leaving. She waits for the day she will be acknowledged and appreciated, by the other women who loves those same children, for she is a mother too.

Stepmoms, because I know we need the reminder—  you are a BADASS. You took this lifelong commitment willingly. And through the stress, drama and the thankless days, here you stand— living another day and making it count. You are inspiring and leave me in awe. Thank you for what you do. Know you have a tribe supporting you every step of the way. We love you!

I'm going to be honest with you guys.  I haven't been very motivated to talk to y'all,  or post any of my thoughts the last week or so.  I've been in my own head since BM called and told us SD doesn't want to live with us anymore.  I'm shocked.  I'm hurt.  I'm confused.  I just can't believe those words came out of my minis mouth. And now we haven't been able to call or talk to her.  But my mommy duties keep going,  we have 2 birthday parties to plan for her,  gifts to buy,  back to school supplies,  clothes,  the best lunch snacks in the school.  So as usual my last half of the summer is filled with making sure she has all the coolest stuff and anything she could imagine.  Putting our date nights,  or any shopping for me aside.  Making new chore charts,  and new ways to make homework fun.  But yet I've been heart broken this year doing it.  What if I lose my girl? What about all those people reminding me she isn't really my girl? And then part of me is so in doubt that she really feels that way after all she's told me that I just want my mini to be home and safe from any manipulation from BM.  So it's officially 2 weeks until we get to drive 10 hours to get her and I'm counting the days.  I think I'll hug her the entire way home.
.
.
.
 But I realized this is why I have YOU GUYS. In times like this, when I want to hide is when I need y'all support and strength. So here I am.  Missing my mini and ready for summer to end. But I missed y'all too! So tell me about your summers! ☀ 💕 .

Y'all,  this was sent to me and the truth and reality of it needs to be shared.  So,  I'll just leave this right here. .
.

Let me know what y'all think either way.  I'm interested in where the parents stand, if we are honest with ourselves, in your family. .
.
.

I have a problem with finding this balance, especially as a stepmom.  I need my relationship with DH to be a priority but I make my SD my priority in everything,  spoiled,  want her to feel part of us, and being entitled is def one of the behaviors we've been seeing from her lately and punishing. My DH does a great job at this though so hopefully he keeps holding it down while I catch up. .
