New to the board. Someone said they would love to see me more so if she keeps this link at the bottom of her posts i will visit!! And probably gain some insight and maybe some advice! Hope I am posting in the right spot.
I am remarried, 40 this year yikes, for 3 years in June. We have a little girl that will be two in July, and the boys from my previous marriage are 17, grade 11 and 14, grade 8.
My husband is wonderful and I just love his parents who help baby sitt while I am working our little girl. They are just great people. Our biggest problem and basically the only thing we fight about is my boys....
Back ground....My ex and I split in 2007. Just could not get along. Very different people, he was kind of manipulative and could not stop spending money, deeper and deeper in debt and I really didn't even think he liked me anymore at all. We don't live that far apart, rurually about 10 miles on separate farm yards. Don't get along too bad, we have the boys 50-50, he has them more on the weekends as he travels for work. I have them more during the school week. He is a bit of disney land dad.
So they are good kids actually. No drugs, respectful but not all that ambitious and kind of lazy. Typical teenage boys. The problem is that my husband has an amazing work ethic and was raised to do lots of chores, he never forgot anything and helped out anywhere and any way he could for his parents. If they do small things he gets upset over it like leave the door open, or foget their chores, or make bad decisions with their spending money. It is hard on the kids and I am always in the middle.
How do you all handle these things? Advice is always welcome.
