My partner and I decided on health insurance that was best for our arriving newborn and his two kids with his baby moms. He did ask her opinion earlier on but then decided to go with what was more affordable and staying in the same network that the baby would be born under. We chose to do Kaiser for health insurance, but she wanted UnitedHealthcare since her kids have had it since birth. My partner made the change and since she has state insurance his insurance will become the primary. She’s upset.
My partners son is 13 and has a pretty severe case of ADHD. I thought I could handle it and after living together it really opened my eyes to the severity and I became very overwhelmed and depressed and as a result it put a strain on me and my partners relationship. I have a five year old boy who is very active and social and I became very aware and worried of the negative influence his son was having on mine. We obviously raised our children very differently as most parents do but the result of that was rubbing off on my son.
I didnt know that being a stepmom and being in a blended family was so hard. Im on my second marriage and things are definitely different. No privacy and more responsibilities!
So my SD wants a quinceanera I've been there since she was 1 with my DH. SD will be having a quinceanera in a couple of years me and DH are both Catholic but BM is not she thinks it's stupid to have a " big party" for a15th birthday. My SD does not want to invite BM because she doesn't want drama with her. We haven't started the planning because we are early I'm just not sure how to go about planning this party without looking like I'm excluding BM I mentioned to my DH that BM can have her own party since she doesn't believe in quinceanera anyways. What should I do?
So, I have 2 boys of my own and my SS lives with us full time. I have been with his father since he was two years old. My DH and I have been married for two years. He and I have each been married twice before. He has two other children both adults. I have one adult son who is going to school and lives with us and another in high school. Though I was married before they were very short marriages and I really was a single mother for most of my son's lives. My husband did not raise his two older children and had them every weekend until they were teens.
My Boyfriend and I have been living together for about 8 months. He has 3 children (Boy-age 14, Girl-age 10, and Girl-age 6)and I have two children (Girl-age 17 and Boy-age 11).
I am admittedly pretty strict with my kids when it comes to cleaning up after themsleves, not back talking, and taking responsibilty for themselves and their actions. My boyfriend on the other hand, not so much!
