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 […]

My Opinion

February 24, 2018

My opinion. I wrote this post earlier about an experiment I did with my Twitter and Instagram polls.  The results made me think more about my opinions, and changed them a little bit. Do you believe in child support? So, before these polls, I would have said no.  However, I had a few conversations with classmates […]

How to be The Best Step Mom

Reflection of 2017

December 29, 2017

As 2017 is coming to a close, I wanted to reflect back on my year.  So much has happened, and I have grown so much as a person.  2017 has not been an easy year by any stretch.  I’ve made friends, drifted away from friends, and even found out that one of my best friends […]

Why I Started This Blog

December 27, 2017

I started this blog for a few reasons. I wanted to write for myself. I’m the type of person who has to think out loud.  This is kind of thinking out loud for me.  I’m writing down my thoughts, my feelings, my experiences.  I sometimes find myself admitting to things I haven’t admitted to myself […]
