Welcome & congrats on your new marriage!

Hi...I am a new member :)  I recently became a step mom to three kids ages 10, 13, and 18.  I also have a son of my own who is 11.  I guess I never relized how difficult it is being a step-parent.  We lived together for a while before getting married, which I am very glad we did.  I figured that it would get easier as time went on, but I feel like it is just getting harder.  Sometimes I feel like I am just there and everything revolves around my husbands kids because there is 3 of them against me and my 1.  My child gets along great with the kids and I am so happy they do.  I guess I just feel like I do so much for them and I am not appreciated or respected.  I also can't stand my husband ex!  We provide her with plenty of child support, insurance, and we provide so much for his kids and she just keeps wanting more!  I went from being just my child and I to a family of six.  There are so many things I wish we could do, but mannn it is expensive!  Will things ever get better instead of worse???  I love our blended family, but at times it can be so difficult! :/

Greetings everyone! My name is Da'Maris and I'm a step-parent of two teenage boys and one adult young lady. I have been married to by husband for over 4 years now and we dated for 3 1/2 prior to getting married. I joined Cafe Mom to for a safe place to vent and to get some much needed guidance on dealing with "it" all. Currently we are in court for custody of the boys because there are so many issues involved that are negatively affecting the adolescent kids.

Hi! My name is Kelly. I am a 41 year old mom of  21 and 18 year old daughters. And stepmom to 6 more - 15 year old twins,  a 14 year old, a 10 year old, and a 4 year old stepdaughters and a 7 year old stepson. YUP!! You read that right. LOL There are 8 kids in the house. Seven girls and one boy.

My two are in college and living at home. The rest are in high school, elementary school and day care. Life is very crazy at our house. Sometimes things are absolutely wonderful!! Sometimes I struggle, that's why I am here. :) I am hoping that I can get some good advice along the way and maybe give some as well.

Hey there! I'm Laura and I have 3 kids (10, 8 and 6) that I share custody with although my oldest refuses to see me. I am also getting remarried next month and will become a SM to 2 amazing kids (11 and 8). I am excited about joining the CafeMom as I NEED a place to vent to others that can relate. :-)
