My recent posts I’ve talked about how irritating my SD is to me. I tried disengagement and it didn’t work because my husband started getting angry I didn’t help take care of his kid. Stupid ex wife of his is on his ass because I’m not doing his kid’s laundry anymore. So here I am. Taking care of a damn kid who doesn’t even appreciate my help. I have a 3 month old LO who has colic so I’m pretty frustrated throughout the day. Damn SD comes home and makes my daughter cry even more.
I'm a 26 year old first time mom of a 4 month old baby girl. Dating a guy, 28, with 2 kids of his own from a previous relationship, BS8 and BD4. And the 4 month old is our daughter together. We aren't married yet and I honestly dont know if I'd ever marry him at this point because his kids drive me bonkers!
Hello Hello! My name is Nicole and I am a 32 year old "stepmom" to two kids, SS10 and SD12. I use " " because technically I'm not a stepmom, DH and I are NOT married but I've been in their lives for almost seven years so I feel I earned the title. I have not one but TWO BMs that are in my life. It has NOT been easy, and I truly value groups/websites like this where I can vent and also help others.
It is not an easy situation to be in but at the same time, it is the life I chose. There are a few struggles I deal with on a consistent basis:
I am new to this group, but a six year stepmom. I am overwhelmed by the crazy that is my life. My DH has two ex BM's. One is borderline personality, and a narcissistic master manipulator. The other is a former meth addicted purse snatcher. What that says about me I shutter to think, though in my defense I didn't know these things until we were engaged. I had BM #1 dump the kids on me from day 1 (probably assuming they would make me run and not that I was the most patient person she would ever encounter). Then, after nine months she takes them away. Then does it again. And again.
