Learning to Disengage
This is the first weekend I really feel good about my ability to disengage from overparenting my Skids. I think it's harder when you have your own bio kids, and then you have Skids, it's harder to not swing into mom action with the skids. I have struggled for the past year with how to NOT be a mom to my skids. There's aspects of mothering to being a stepmom, but its also about knowing when to not be a mom. I need practice on not being a mom. But I think I did pretty good this weekend with it. Learning to let Dad take certain issues, and learning to let other issues just go...I am less stressed...feels good. feels damn good.
