We are hanging out at gymnastics tonight watching our girl do her thing.
🤸‍♀️
Do you attend your stepchildren’s activities? Even if BM is there?
🤸‍♀️
There are currently 5 of us cheering K on! Mom, Stepdad, Sister, Dad, and me!

"okay so i have a two yr old daughter from a previous relationship. im married now with a 5 month old. i married my childhood sweetheart. my oldest daughter doesn’t know her dad that well. he lives in fl and im currently in ny.
she was recently diagnosed with separation anxiety and is currently enrolled in dyadic therapy and seeing a child psychologist. my problem is, her father never calls or looks for her consistently. he can go three months without so much as a text to see if shes ok or needs anything. she has severe anxiety, especially meeting new ppl. her dad is a stranger to her, she saw him last december and she went bat-shit crazy when he tried to grab her. he is in a new relationship and his wife doesnt want him to have any contact with me at all. he stated once that he never calls because he doesnt want to deal with me. he blocked me on social media and blocked my number, he only calls her every few weeks on my husbands phone. if that. we are now going to trial because he doesnt want me to have sole legal custody of her. but mind you, when we left fl to move back to nyc, we notarized a letter stating that he was giving me sole legal custody and permission to move with her. but his wife is pushing him to go for joint or full.

my question is, has anyone done this? i honestly have no idea what his petition is for the judge but he wants to be able to see her whenever he wants, not taking into consideration that she is suffering from a mental illness and cannot be away from me for too long. i want her to have supervised visits with him in nyc, not fl. he wants me to have no part of their relationship. he wants to pick her up, and ignore my calls and be left alone to do whatever he wants to do, even if she has a panic attack. i even have medical papers from her dr stating that she has yo be with me at all times. can he win? can i win? anyone here a lawyer? im just dying of anxiousness because this is my first time doing this. any advice would be appreciated!!"

💯x’s YES! Take a screenshot of this and refer to daily. What an incredible reminder to help us get through our days. May you find peace in your day. (I’ll be using my Peace rollerball as backup today for extra insurance 😉🤷‍♀️).

Consistency is what it takes to get you where you need to be.

Consistency in your workouts, nutrition and self development.

If you give up now you are only quiting on yourself.

You are worth every second of every day.

Keep pushing to find your new limits.

"ss has denied phone call with bm once again this weekend, which makes it the 4th weekend in a row.. i don't even feel bad for her. what do you expect after being gone for over 4 years + zero attempts to visit your own child, who's now 8, within those 4+ years. you're lucky he knows of _____, the "family friend", at all.. long story, trust me🙄 wished we didn't have to deal with her 5x a month but i should be grateful.. wish ss was old enough for us to tell him the whole truth of _____ being his birth mother and how she abandoned him and all that. but that's ok because that day will come, not soon enough lol but it'll be come. wish i could adopt him but were only engaged atm and we'd never have to deal with her until he's 18/19, when he can decide if he wants a relationship with her or not..but were only engaged. no advice, just needed a place to share my somewhat selfish thoughts😐"

"we have sd5 over 2-3 days a week and she just started kindergarten so it feels like we see her less. we try to do family fun activities when available, but on days where we don't have anything planned or we just do errands (ie. grocery shopping, doctor's appointments, etc) sd gets bored. she complains that she wants to do something fun and the moment we aren't doing an activity, she gets bored. how do we teach her we can't do something fun all day, every day and that it's okay to not do anything? we're also in the middle of a custody battle and feeling like we have to make coming over to our home "entertaining"."

Sometimes within a family, guidelines for respect are clear and understood; sometimes they are not. It is always a good idea to ensure you and your partner’s expectations for respect are discussed, spoken out loud shared with the children/stepchildren and demonstrated - especially when living arrangements change. Having a visual reminder in a communal place in the home can often assist in encouraging the right type of behaviour (by everyone, whatever their age), especially in the first couple of weeks, months and years, when those faced with the prospect of being a part of a stepfamily are figuring out how they feel about someone or about the situation as a whole.
.
We’d love to hear what does respect means to you? How do you show respect in your stepfamily? Is it easily given and recognizable?

Push yourself outside your comfort zones 🙌🙌

Saturday was a big deal for me 😁 meeting lots of new people, having to walk to different spots we were meeting up in 😟😤 In the past I would have said flat out NO to something like because of my anxiety with charcot marie tooth disease. The embarrassment of having to explain to people that I can't walk far. The fear of having eyes on me, looking different 🙁😔
.
.
We did a bit of walking and I did really good and got a taxi when I needed to and wasn't afraid to say I needed it 😊 I was in a bit of pain the next day but it was so worth it and I had the best time with an amazing group of people 😎😃🤗 still on a high 🙌🎉👌

Remarriage, with kids.  Adoption.  Fostering.  Sheltering.  Those of you who are able to love another’s as your own are awesome.  I hope, if the need or opportunity ever arises, I am able to rise to the occasion with the grace and dedication that I have seen in others.
