Oh Canada's Blog
Just out of (twisted)curiosity.... I'd like to know the other side of the story.
What do Bio Mom's blog about? I'd like to read about THEIR insecurities, gripes, knoted stomaches, and other storm clouds that linger above BM's heads.
You know what they say.... Know thy enemy.
We've all faced this at some point I'm sure.
You get into conversations with others about relationships. They tell you about their ex's / step kids ~ you talk about your situation. Fine. Most people are I know are divorced / going through the 2nd marriage thing. whatever.
Hello everyone! I've been reading this site and many of your posts for over a year now and everyone here has been tremendously helpful in so many ways.
I usually just read what's been posted and get insight from that, but this time I would like to ask you all a question directly; what purpose does it serve for BM to want to meet my fiance and I for dinner so she can meet me?
Their kids are grown - last one just graduated HS and is 18 on her way to college out of state & the other older kids are doing their own thing as well (as much as kids do these days...).
I really would love to be "strong" and let my uncomfortable feelings "roll like water off a ducks back" but theres a bit of a power stuggle going on within me.
There's a dichotomy at work here. My mom raised me to stand up for myself - to not be a little mouse over in the corner living on the crumbs of life. BUT (and there's always a but...) good girls are supposed to think of other peoples feelings...bla bla bla.
At least many of you ladies are putting yourself out there and being seen and heard by his ex and family. I still haven't come out of my dark little corner. I am almost positive I will never be at the same event / place as his ex. Well, not if I can help it. I would probably have a complete melt down. I don't know how you ladies have the courage to DO all this stuff. Meet his family, ex's family, kids, all that stuff - I would feel totally lost / and end up feeling so awkward.
I am not sure what to make of my boyfriends 16 year old daughter. She seems nice enough - she's polite and all that. But I am starting to believe that she is avoiding situations that include me.
My boyfriends kids are pretty much adults (16 yr old D being the youngest) and they all live at home with their mom a few miles from our house.
I've decided to do some worring about future events!
My BF and I plan to marry and not have any children of our own. He has 4 already and 3 of them are young adults. I am wondering what it's going to be like when his kids start having babies of their own. I don't have a lot of interest in having children but worry that I will feel the sting of jealousy (or maybe I won't be jealous - but happy!).
