I want to let women know that they aren't alone in their struggles and their insecurities - so that they're not ashamed for feeling the way they feel. This is real, this is common, we need to stop feeling ashamed.
It's time to remove the guilt and anxiety we all feel when we don't measure up to unreal expectations that we've set for ourselves! We need to stop comparing ourselves to how we think everyone else is parenting! It's time to just be real!
They say the first year of marriage is your honeymoon phase. It's supposed to be the easiest year of your marriage. I don't think that applies to second marriages or stepfamily situations. It wasn't for us at least.
