I am so damn sick and tired of being a full-time SM, YET....I'm never allowed to provide my input or my opinion on how SD13 should be raised. BM has not seen nor spoken to SD since 2012 so I'm it.
For Full-Time Steps....What do you all do when your skids refer to BM/BF as the real mom, or the real dad?
SD12--will be 13 next week--has always loved to be filthy dirty. She is most comfortable with clutter, garbage, dust, dirt, etc.
So lately I've noticed that on the days DH argues with me...the very next morning, SD12 will leave milk spilled on the table or crumbs & peanut butter on the counters.
SD's days are still numbered, even if it is painfully far away...
1,870 days until SD is 18. LOL
Does anyone monitor kids/skids email or social media accounts? It seems like all the access to social media is more responsibility than kids can handle these days.
I cannot help but hate the whole back-to-school shopping for SD12. She has lived with us full-time for half her life while BM has done absolutely nothing for her.
SD13 lives here full time and it STILL feels awkward and uncomfortable every singe time she shows her face.
My SD12 has talked in her sleep off and on since the day I met her when she was 4 yrs old. During the first 4 yrs of her life, DH would get phone calls from BM telling him SD has night terrors.
Every day after school, SD12 will sit in her room supposedly doing homework for hours. The only time she comes out is for dinner.
