Thank you for accepting me!
I'm a 53 year old stepmom to two boys age 19 and 17, they were 12 and 10 when I met their dad. I have a 36 year old son and two grandchildren 8 and 4, I had my son young and had him raised when I met my current husband. My husband is 49 and lost his late wife to suicide when the boys were small, I was very reluctant to become a stepmother to boys about to be teenagers but I felt like God had put me in this position for a reason. My husband and I met in 2014 and I moved in with him in 2015, we both swore we would never marry again but we got married in 2019. My husband's mother lives next door and had practically raised the boys their whole life so she was their second mom and there was never any chance of me making any decisions or parenting. I guess I kind of thought we would be a family and I could be there for them when they needed a mom but that was never the case, I would have their favorite foods fixed when they would get home from school only to be told that their grandmother was taking them out to eat, the first time wasn't that big of a deal but then it continued and my husband wouldn't say anything or make them stay home and eat what I had made for them, the boys loved eating out and was accustomed to going out to eat a lot and would beg to go and their grandmother would always give in, we're not talking McDonald's, more like red lobster and ocharleys and who can compete with that.
