Welcome Sharon!

Quoting SeattleTriplets:

Hi, I'm Sharon.  I'm a quasi-step-mom to 6 yr old (almost 7 yr old) triplet girls.  I've chosen to seek out this site in an effort to find encouragement and advice from seasoned step moms.  I have been with their dad for a year and have been a part of their life on a semi-regular basis for 8 months.  They alternate weeks with mom and dad.  On the weeks that they are with dad, I've begun to develop a relationship with them and we seem to get along quite well.  I don't live with their dad full-time but I do stay over 2-3 nights during that week depending on my work schedule.

The greatest challenge for me is in adjusting to the role of step mom.  I do not have children of my own and am dealing with realities that I never will.  Not because of the triplets, but because of my age (39) and my health (family history of diabetes) that makes it not a viable option.  

Anyway, "Hi!" and thank you for letting me join the group, despite my not-yet-officially-mom stage.

Hello everyone!  My name is Veronica.  My husband and I have 3 kids--a 15 year old stepdaughter from DH first marriage, a 10 year old daughter and a 9 year old son.  DH and I have been together for almost 13 years now.   big smile mini  And I've been in SD's life for as long as she remembers.  Still definitely doesn't make stepparenting any easier so lately I've been searching for more SM who understand my situation.  I look forward to getting to know everyone and getting some great advice!

My name is Shana. I am 30 years old with an 11 year old daughter, a 6 month old daughter and a 6 year old stepson. I have been with my bf for 3 years. I'm having a difficult time with my stepson since our daughter was born. I have pretty much raised him since he was three, now is is pooping himself and lying. It is very difficult. I am here for advice and meeting other mothers and stepmothers

Welcome Veronica!  You've come to the right place to find others who can relate/understand what you go through as a SM.  :)

Welcome Shana!  

I wonder if your SS isn't just regressing a little as he looks for some attention now that there's a new baby in the house.  Hopefully he'll move past this soon.
