Ok... so here's my back story. My husband and I met the summer before my senior year. We dated for a while, he even lived w/ me and my mom. When we broke up we just went our seperate way, for almost 10 years!! We were both young. We had no contact, no phone calls, no emails, not even myspace/facebook. Then one day, almost 10 yrs later, I'm sitting at my house in England (I'm active duty air force) and he crossed my mind. I typed his name into facebook and BAM! There was his face just staring at me. That was April 27, 2010. I messaged him and we literally picked up right where we left off and were married 2 months later! I know, fast and crazy. But I've always compared guys to him, he's the only one that can put up w/ me, I'm quite the handful!!! Well, he has a 6 yr old from a previous relationship. The "egg donor", as I call her, has NEVER been in our son's life. Lawstin, our son, took to me right away and was calling me 'mom' w/in a week! He's never had one so he was super excited to get one! But I find myself STILL struggling w/ trying to be a mom. It's like EVERYTHING he does irritates me, I'm ALWAYS getting onto him... stop this, stop that, quite smiling, stop acting like a kid... who does that?! Is it just me?! I was wondering if anyone had any advice on how to be a good mom to a child that you didn't give birth to but calls your son and wants to be a good mom??
