I am a stepmom and have been one for 15 years + now that they are grown my dh still treats them like the way he is supposed to " a father " but even though I know this I feel a tad jealous bc now that they are grown I want him all to myself like I wish he would cut them off but I know that is absurd to even think that way and its not their fault that their parents didnt work out. I knew he had his kids when I met him but I dont know why I thought it wasnt gonna be that way all of the time seems now that they are adults they need dad more than ever. I guess I am a bit bitter bc I feel like I am getting the short end of the stick...bc all these years their mother has been hovering over my dh for more money on top of CS while she is working and receiving CS from her other ex dh and now has a bf that makes way good money and all I feel like she is receiving, receiving, receiving and we are struggling, struggling, struggling...no matter how many hours we put in and she just takes and takes with no care in the world and I despite her for that. Everytime they talk about her around us I dont want to hear it but cant avoid it. I know I am going to get a bash full of you ladies but I dont know how else to feel, I hate to even think this way...can someone say a kind word or two to make me feel like there is light at the end of the tunnel. I love my dh so very much I just dont want to feel this way any longer...
Needed to vent very badly...and thank you for listening.
