  • As a fantasy, yes. As reality, no, not really. I do think sometimes about packing up my bio kids & leaving DH & the s-kids. I know I wouldn't but being a step mom stresses me out more than being a mom.

  • I haven't. I've weighed pros and cons about leaving DH sometimes, after a fight or whatever, but the thought of the kids always keeps me home, and we always get over it and move on with our family, so I'm thankful we both have that glue there when emotions run high, kwim?

  • Well, it's only me and the kids. I do sometimes, when they are both really frustrating me, kind of fantasize about a life with no kids. But it's only a fantasy, I would never really do it. I love them too much and would be too miserable without them.

  • Yes, I have fantasized about picking up and going on without my family ~ only on days when they've frustrated me and I'm stretched to the limit...you get so wrapped up dealing with the day end and day outs of life that you forget to take time for yourself and you're left short fused, confused and totally stressed out...it seems that everyone's taking and no one is giving towards you...I've had those days...more than I care to remember...
