A Positive Post on Being a Step Parent!

I myself am not an official step mom yet, but I live with my bf and his 2 kids girl and a boy 5, and 6. We have them every other weekend and a night or two a week and its a huge adjustment for me....but......I want everyone to see what they have in a bigger picture. YOU are going to be a huge influence on these kids lives, and someone they can look up to. I myself don't want kids of my own but i'm fine with potentially being a step-parent. I see it as a huge gift and knowing i'm now in a family :) I know there are challenges along the way i'm learning alot! I was having a hard time adjusting from the single life to a family life. But knowing I have these SK's that love me just makes the situation less difficult, they are totally worth every bump in the road :)  LOOK AT THE POSITIVE

Hi,

That is great that they will or are going to have you as a parent enjoy it.

I am a step mom of six and a mom of two and yes it can be challenging and fun and one thing we all have to understand is not every one will get along and if you get in with the positive look to the situation you will have a great time and you will be the best step parent they could think of.

I love my family and we support each other through the challenges!!!

Take it easy and have a great time!!

Lil'

Thank YouLaughing
