I cant stand the kid
SD doing every other weekend has been wonderful. The downside: when she is here it's even worse in comparison. I honestly completely regret as this point not going with my gut feeling and waiting for a guy without kids. I seriously just cant stand her. Everyone else I know with stepkids as formed some bond as some point, but I've never been able to with her. And it's not just DHs parenting (not that that doesn't help), it's her personality. That's not going to change.
