Ohh where do I begin. Lol. This may be really long!
My husband and I have the best relationship... until 10 yr old SS is here. We have one child together who is 1.5 and I am very pregnant with our second. Husband puts his son on such a pedestal when he is here because BM is not pleasant for anyone and feels bad for his kid. I get that to a point... but I can't even have five minutes alone with my husband while his son is here. Every single thing is about his kid, not me or our son. He has no discipline of him and gets mad at me when I step in and say something is not going to fly under my roof. I am so tired of being the bad guy.
We were out to breakfast last weekend and SS (15) says: "Yeah, after highschool I'm going to go to college in Texas. Texas is where I belong. With family". Silently in my head --- Wow- did that just come out of your mouth? Apparently it did because it just keeps getting better and better...
I feel the need to remind myself daily that I am a very successful, fun, and helpful person that people like and care about. All of these things are true. I have an amazing job where I get to make good money and work from my home daily. My laundry is always done, we have homecooked meals every night, and I get to work in my pajamas. This is any working mother's dream! So why do I feel anxious and depressed all the time? My oldest son is 16. He is 6'4", athletic and kind. My oldest daughter is 14, smart and loving (with a sprinkle of sass).
