We're always concerned with the stepkids feeling left out, but sometimes it's the "ours baby" that gets the short end of the stick.
All I want to do is open up the conversation about blended family life and debunk the stigma associated with being a stepmom!
My New Years Resos have been a flop! But I'm not ready to throw in the towel just yet.
Because you know what they say, when you know better, you do better!
After having friends with the winter blues in previous years, and then experiencing it first hand myself, I can vouch that it's the real deal. I also know that there are things you can do, to buck up and plow through
As stepmoms, we have this nasty habit of overthinking things, and taking them WAY too personally!
Realistically everything probably won't stay exactly like this, but there is something refreshing about starting the new year off with a clean & organized slate.
One thing that step-parenting & "real"parenting have in common is that every family has a different dynamic & no parent REALLY knows what they're doing - we're all just figuring it out as we go!
No more skunky laundry, no more forgotten dry cleaning, no more being a slave to my phone!
When I look back on those early stepmoms days and think about the situations that caused me the most stress and anxiety, the hockey arena takes the cake!!
