Blended Family Issues
I am very very new at this step parenting this. I am not new to parenting as I was previously a single mom for 6 years. I work for my parents and my mom.
Please tell me if and how you guys do this.
BM has now proposed her and DH split the cell phone bill for SS.
We have 4 kids: 2 bios for me (BS15 and BD13) and 2 for DH (SS14 and SD9)
So, many of you might know how my SD22 is only lovey dovey with daddykins when she wants $. Not unlike your skids I'm sure.
So, I posted earlier about my SS22 being in a car accident and how my DH wants me to care for her since I'm a chiropractor. NOT gonna happen...
As time comes closer to OBS graduating I've noticed he isn't speaking with many people any more. The friends he's had since 7th 8th grade. I was curious and asked last night.
Thursday night OBS has a dinner at school to present his jersey number and spot on the team. It's a pretty big deal I found out freshman year when I showed up in jeans and a Tshirt.
I am hoping to get some perspective, validation and advice.
This weekend's visit went ok... I guess.. we had a great time picking pumpkins and carving them, we went to the zoo... life seemed ok...
Long story short... BM co sleeps with her. She is not capable of sleeping through the night in her own bed on any given night.
Ok so DH and I recently got married but he split up form BM over 4 years ago. SS14 and I get on like a house on fire, he is a great kid.
