Why DH...why?

Really DH? Why would you ask SS how he would feel if we had another kid? It was a hypothetical joking question, but SS does not like DS, so really all you accomplished was pissing me off.

Making it official

I've been with DH for over 5 years. I refer to him as DH here and in real life when I'm introducing him to others that don't know us. I call SS and SD my stepkids on those occasions too.

Skids at Birthday Party Issue

My friend is having a birthday party for her two year old. I just told DH about the party and he asked if we had the kids that weekend and I said yes.

Venting

Though this happened months ago, I just found out that SS12 ran up over $500 worth of online games on BM's credit card.

DH and I arguing about Skids and BM in front of BS

I feel like I'm screwing up my own child.

Avoiding family pictures

My DH wants to do a family portrait. One with DH, me, SD, SS, and DS and one with just DH, me, and DS. I've been avoiding the subject. I've grown to really dislike SS.

They're back...

So the stepkids were gone for almost 4 weeks this summer and it was blissful. I was only expecting them to be away for two weeks, but things worked out so they were at their grandmom's for longer.

Feeling a bit down and isolated

Life has changed a lot in the past couple of months. I had my baby. I now have daily thoughts of leaving DH.

I can't let things go like DH can

I’m just a broken record at this point. I can’t stand living with the kids. It’s the little things too.

SD thinks I hate her mom

So, SD15 told DH that she felt like I was "against" her mother. She didn’t want him telling me. I guess she just wanted to let it out to her dad, plus I think she wanted attention from him.
