What should I do?

Stepmom25's picture

My DH’s dad passed away yesterday. His brother and wife, his aunts, nephew, skids, BM and her husband (they came by so the skids could see their grandmother and dad), were all at his mom’s house today. When it came time for them to leave, SS4 said bye and hugged me, but SD6 didn’t. She hugged her dad, grandmother, and aunt. She hasn’t seen her aunt in a while so I figured that was why. Before that though, I was on the couch and she sat in my lap twice. It kinda made me sad that she didn’t hug me bye, but she rarely does. But, she did hug me when I seen her Saturday.

Please help me out

Maybe I am reading too much into this, but here goes...

SD7, SS4, and I were playing. We acted like me and SD7 switched bodies and SS4 and DH switched bodies. We were trying to find the “magic lamp” that could turn us back into our own bodies. SS4 says, “let’s go to our step mom’s house.” And SD7 said, “we don’t have a step mom (insert SS4’s name).” And SS4 said, “well I’m going to call her step mom.”

How do y’all feel about matching Christmas pajamas?

Stepmom25's picture

My family and I don't do it. Mainly because we see the kids one night a week, I'm afraid the kids won't cooperate, don't want to feel awkward, husband won't do it lol, and I don't want to hurt BM if that makes sense. I feel like if I was their mom and I saw them doing the whole matching pajamas Christmas photo, I would be a little hurt. Idk. Could be just me. But did y'all do it this year?

What do y’all think?

Okay so my DH has a jar of sand from when him and BM went to the beach (before they had kids). It's on his night stand in the bedroom. It's been there for years. I mentioned it to him one day and he honestly said he forgot about it. I mean in some ways I don't mind that it's there. I know he had a past and good memories before me. I know if I got anything nice from me and my ex husband, I would want to keep it. At first I thought about throwing it away or hiding it, but now I honestly don't know. Would this bother y'all? Should I let it go? The BM is really nice and we all get along.

New bed for SD6

Stepmom25's picture

My husband and I got SD6 a new bed, dresser, chest of drawers in her very own room. She’s not quite ready to sleep by herself so she wanted me to sleep with her. Well, last night, I was laying with her and I got up to go to the bathroom. My husband goes in there to say goodnight to her and tuck her in while I’m in the bathroom. I come back and she says that she wants her dad to sleep with her and not me. She tells me to “shoo” so I go to my bed. It made me a little upset because she will probably want her dad to sleep with her now instead of me. I'm just upset

Not step kid related but please help

So I have this neighbor who likes to flirt with me, even though he is married. He has wolf whistled at me before while I’m riding my bicycle and has even talked to me before in a flirty way. He has made me feel uncomfortable to even ride my bicycle in the road because I fear he will see or talk to me. He lives to the right of me and I usually ride my bike to the right, but now I’m thinking I need to ride it to the left and avoid the right or taking my bike somewhere else to ride. Any advice on what I should do? Should I ride my bike on the other side of road? 

Is it wrong of me to not want my step kids to stay the night if it’s just me?

My husband works in the evening, and the kids stay with me until their dad gets off, but I had already made plans to see my parents and sister. Is it wrong of me if I don't want them to stay with just me?
