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 […]

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 […]

Think Positive

November 23, 2017

“You can choose love or hate, I choose love” – Johnny Cash. It’s so easy to focus on all the bad aspects of being a Step Parent.  Baby Momma drama, step kids being disrespectful, court dates, lack of support and understanding from family and friends, stressed out significant other. There’s an endless list of shit […]
