The House Model.

May 14, 2018

As you may have read in some of my older posts, I struggled a lot with jealousy.  I also talked a lot about how I dealt with my jealousy.  I’d like to say that I am over the whole jealousy aspect, but that wouldn’t be the truth.  However, it is not the same as it […]

Surviving Mothers Day as a Childless Step Mom.

May 9, 2018

The little ones are hard at work in school, creating beautiful Mother’s Day crafts.  Tracing their little hands over coloured construction paper, cutting them out to make pretty flowers out of them.  Making beautiful cards expressing love and appreciation. Your fridge will be empty.  You won’t have a beautiful masterpiece to display.  You’re only a […]

You may or may not have noticed my absence the past month.  As my readers, I feel as if I should explain my reasoning. Things with her are not good. Before on my posts, you would have read how things with her had been getting better.  My blog was all about keeping things positive.  That positive streak […]

Lesson Learned.

March 16, 2018

I don’t know if I will end up posting this.  This is something I needed to write out to really process.  If this gets posted, it’s because I hope someone learns from my mistakes, and/or relates to what I have experienced.

Watching Him Change

March 13, 2018

I stepped into my boyfriend’s life at a bad time; or maybe a good time.  He had recently cut ties with her, and he knew he was never going to have the family he pictured when he found out he was going to be a Dad.  I watched him grow from the “boy” he was when […]

An Experiment

In one of my college courses, we are learning about legislation in my province.  There was a few articles I had to read based on some information of children and child support, fatherless homes, parental alienation and other similar topics.  I was happy with the content I was reading, as it supported some of my […]

January 23, 2018

Alright ladies.  This might grind some gears, as I think my opinions might differ from others.  However, I have adopted some of these opinions whilst learning about the family dynamics in one of my college courses. You’re not their Mom. Hard to hear, I know.  First and foremost, you did not carry them in your […]
