My little Willsy wrote me this yesterday. Apparently she thinks it was a good decision that I married Glen. I know that but where on earth did an 11 year old come up with such things?? So cute. ❤#stepparenting

Being a Mom isn’t a part-time job. You cant just “clock in” and then “clock out” after you’ve seen your kids once a week. I don’t understand how some parents could be so SELFISH. They are out there having “date nights” and going to parties every other weekend while someone else takes care of their kids. Well I cherish these moments that I spend with these babies and all I can do is make the most out of this experience. I pray for them every night and I’m thankful I get to wake up with a house full of loud noises and lots of love every single day. ♥️ I am not ashamed of being a #Stepmom who stepped up when their real mother stepped out. #familyovereverything

Research from the University of North Carolina has found close ties between children and their biological parent has a positive impact on the stepparent-stepchild relationship in the home. In other words, the better the relationship between your stepchild and your partner the more likely your relationship with your stepchild is going to be a good one. .
What can you do to support your partner's relationship with their child? .
.
One of the easiest things is to just make yourself scarce and allow your partner and your stepchild to have some one-on-one quality time together. Time where your partner is present and focussed on their child and nothing else. .
.
This can turn out to be a real bonus as it frees you up to be able to focus on yourself. You can use the time that your partner and stepchild are together to get in your own quality time with your biological kids, friends or family, to recharge your batteries or otherwise just take care of yourself. .
.
You may also want to spend that time thinking about and writing down all the other ways that you do and can help your partner strengthen their tie with their child. The key here is 'help' not 'do'. Once you've created your list go back through it and cross out anything that involves you 'doing' rather than 'helping'. These shouldn't be on the list. .
.
Doing the parenting or bond-building for your partner doesn't help his or her relationship with their child. And, in turn, it won't help you build a better relationship with your stepchild either. The line between helping and doing is a fine one, and one that your stepchild will be keeping a close eye on even if your partner isn't. .
.
Once your list is completed and full of 'helping' items only, keep it close, pull it out every once in awhile and put one of your 'helping' items into action. .
.
Remember whenever your are able to help your partner enhance his or her relationship with their children, you are also helping yourself to build a better relationship with your stepkids.

Busy day today- workout, nap (most importantly, amiright?? 😜), chat with a fellow coach about Sunday’s EVENT explaining the accountability groups (DM me to be added), and getting ready for my 11 year old stepdaughter’s slumber party! 😳 
I just wanted to pop in to say hi, and let you know it’s NOT too late to hop in the 80 Day Lifestyle Change with us. My goal is to help you lose 5-15 lbs from home, WITHOUT living that chicken and broccoli life (although I DO love my chicken apple sausage. 😂) You tryna shock yourself with results or NAHHH?! I have the best set up in the world for you! Totally doable, love. 💋. *link in bio .

Ladies, allow me a moment TO LOOSE MY S*** (excuse my french). I was watching this wonderful video on Facebook thanking steppparents for what they do.  Although it was a little naive on how stepparenting works, it was the thought that counts. But then I read some of the comments and this one stuck with me because it is a stepmom who said she respects her stepkids but she does not love them. As you can imagine the judgie mcjudgers of Facebook started attacking her. .
.
Where does it say that stepmoms must love her stepkids? Where?! Society is awful putting this pressure of Stepmom. This... NO. Just stop. I added some screenshots of the comments because I’m livid at the comments left for her

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.

Continue... "because he tends to seem "uninvolved" until bm isn't getting her way. and it doesn't help that both him and his (live-in) parents only do the bare minimum for sd7, while doting on bm's child with him. i learned my "place" a long time ago, but at the same time i have helped raise our daughter "from scratch," so i feel very protective of her. what is some advice for dealing with the resentment towards step parents or other parts of your bonus child's family??"

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. .
