I advise you to join a national non profit organization specifically for moms. This topic and potty training and so much more will be at your finger tips 24/7/365. Go to www.themommiesnetwork.org. Completely free support for you with every step of your mom journey. I'm on there, I love it and just opened a local chapter in my area. If you do, look me up, my user name is VirginiaLouden.

VirginaLouden, why send her away  :( ? This is a brand new board. I'm sure there will be more step parents posting here soon.

This is in no way a suggestion to replace topmommyblogs.  ;) I am a member of both and am on both almost daily. I get fulfillment in two different ways from both organizations. With the other one, I have the ability to connect face to face with other moms in my local area. Here, I get help with my writing and reflection as a parent. I would never suggest to replace what I have found here. I like it too much!

Thanks Virgina! I've had a lot of forum hijacking posts lately so I am in crazy clean up/response mode. It looks like a great resource  :D

I am also a Step Mom and boy it was super hard in the beginning and still has it's challenges today. I definitely have formed a unique bond with both of the boys over time. I had two children from a previous marriage and so did my husband, but there was a huge difference in their ages. Because my children are older it took my husband more time to bond with them. We have been told that we are like the Brady Bunch lol. We now have 5 children because we made the choice to have a baby together :) I have lots of little stories/advice that might come in handy so by all means give me a shout! ;D

Lynseyrayne,
Hi there!  I just joined in this week!  I'm a custodial step mom (have been for 12 years) to my husband's now 14 year old daughter.  Together we have two boys ages 9 and 3.  Step parenting is the hardest job on the planet and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.  I'm not sure what your questions might be or where your greatest struggles lie, but I am here for you if you want another stepmom to bounce things off of!

hello,

I am Sarah. I have been part of a blended family for a long time. First with my current boyfriend many years ago and his oldest son. We split up and he went on to marry someone else and have two kids with her and I was looking for love and got with my daughters father who has a son from a previous relationship.  Fate brought my ex/high school sweetheart and I back together.  Now we are a blended family of 6. 

I have a few blogs.  All in my signature and I can message you the password to my shabby blog.
