We all know about Mothers Day and Fathers Day, but what about Step Parents Day.  There should be a day to be recognized, because being a step parent is far-far-far tougher than being the parent. 

I have been with my husband for a total of 9 years coming up this November.  When we first started dating his son was turning 3 in a few weeks, so Ive been around a long time. My husband and his ex-wife ended things during her pregnancy, so my step son has never known what it was like to have mommy and daddy in the same household.  Theyve remained civil through everything and would consider one another a friend, which has been great for my step son.

I remember my parents split, divorce, and aftermath. I was such a BRAT to anyone my dad dated, especially the first one (whom was the reason for the split, awesome co-worker).  I know all about hating a potential step or the actual step once my dad married. Even my moms boyfriends got a dose of the battiness my brothers and I had for anyone other than our other parent.

BUT the stuff I go through with my step son is a whole new ball game.. Hes now a teenager and as the years have gone by its just gotten worse.  No matter what we do or try; counseling, etc.. Nothing seems to work. 
Step parenting by is HARD!  Would love to connect with others to share stories and tips on how to blend successfully. 

Thanks, Jenn
