Best Mother's Gift...

Just wanted to share this with you all, it just reminded me of how much I love my 5 year old daughter. For mother's day she gave me a laminated poster of a poem and her handprints all over it and even drew herself on the poster. She also made this little collage for me and she wrote: My Mom is happy, she likes to play, she always gives me a bath, sometimes she watches TV. But the best thing about my Mom is "She likes me." When I read that I was so happy and proud of her. I just love her more than anything...

Hi All,
Well, you can probably tell by the title, I am day late, and dollar short. I seem to be fighting furiously with this stinking dermatitis. It either itches very badly or it's blistering and burning. I don't know what's worse. But I have a doctor's appointment first thing in the morning, thankfully. I am trying to hard to control myself and not scratch, like mind over matter. And it's damned difficult.

Father's Day coming up, what to do?

Just thought I get your opinion on this. Father's day is coming up next month, it looks like stepson will be w/biomom that weekend. I wanted to take my husband w/kids to dinner for Father's day. I also wanted to include stepson to dinner, would you invite biomom to dinner too since stepson is going to be her that weekend? What would you do? I don't have a close relationship w/biomom, I just feel like if I invite her she might end up getting jealous and see that our life is good and what would the conversation be like? I don't know what to talk about with her? Need your input.

The Engine That Could

Well, I don't look or feel like much these days but I am trying to just keep boosting myself up despite what is thrown at me. I made another appointment with my primary doctor's office so that I could get additional care and they would send me to a dermatologist and also call a different rheumatologist because I can't get anywhere. GA is different because your doctor's office has to call for a specialist appointment and I am not used to that. It's very confusing and frustrating when you are dependent on someone else.

Stepson and Bioson

The most horrible thing has happened and I dont know if i will be able to deal with it. My stepson has accused my son of some bad things (sexual) granted it was supposed to happen almost 4 years ago. I feel like my world has come crashing down- this happened about 6 months ago but it is destroying everyone i have only been married for almost 4 years. Now everything is falling apart-seen my step children in the store the turn and almost run from me- we have my son in counseling and was told probably a experient thing.

Appropriate or not?

I have a question, because I don't want to overstep any boundaries with my boyfriend here. We've been together now for five months, and he shares custody of his almost 3 year old son, so we have him a lot. The thing is, my BF doesn't really dress his son very cute. And when we go out together people assume that I am his mother, and I feel self-conscious about this because I spend a lot of money on my clothes, shoes, bags, etc. because I can because I'm a single gal with nothing else to spend my money on. And then there's this little boy who kinda looks like a rag-a-muffin.

Seeing Clearly

I don't know how clearly I can see these days, or if I even see the forest through the trees. I seem to be in a rough patch. I wrote a blog and then the electric went out and it didn't get posted so all my thoughts were for naught (2 days ago). And I am still having major problems with the unexplainable atopical dermatitis on my hands which is itchy and painful. I am so self-conscious and don' want to be seen with it. My husband hurt himself over the weekend and his lower back is messed up. So, I had that to contend with over the weekend plus the 3 dogs by myself.

A little off subject

Hey ladies -
I needed to chat with somebody and thought you'd be a good place to start. It's not really step parenting related. It's just life related.

I think I have a spending problem. I know I did in the past. But, I thought I had gotten it under control. Seems that new relationship with hubby and step daughter filled the gap for a long time. But now, hubby is really busy with building our house. I mean REALLY busy and I seem to be filling that down time with shopping.
