*to the tune of the Sesame Street theme song -- sing it with me now: 17 days, until he goes away. 17 days, until my house stays clean. Can you tell me how to get? How to get and keep sanity?*
(HINT: It's totally disengaging - that's how you get and keep sanity).
So I have four children ,my youngest is to my partner and he also has a son too ,I have been with my partner for 2 and a half years now but this step parent thing is really starting to grind on me ! My partner is sooo laid back and oblivious with his son it drives me crazy ,since my way of parenting and his is very different , he just ignores what his child does or he's to busy to notice.
I am about to lose my husband because of his 13 year old son. He moved in with us a year ago without my consent; my husband didn't talk to me about this before it happened, he conveniently threw it in during a conversation 5 minutes before his son knocked on the door with his clothes. I have tried for a year to get over this but I can't. I have a 12 year old growing daughter who is no relation to this kid and I am not comfortable with him living in the house. He bullies her and doesn't like her. I don't know what to do, I feel like the best thing for me to do is seperate from my husband.
Oh man. I am so grateful for this place. This is the only outlet that I have to vent. And that's what this is - it's rambling, it's ranting & it's barely coherent. Kind of like me, haha.
I am not surviving the rest of summer vacation. I had a 'come to jesus' moment with my husband & skid on Friday where I was so angry I had to remove myself from the situation.
I am in my second marriage. I have a 7 year old and 4 year old from first marriage. My husband has a 20 yo, 17 yo, and 15 yo from first marriage. We have married a little over a year. His 20 yo daughter chose to live with her mother. His 17 yo son and 15 yo son live with us most of the week, as do my children.
