Out of the picture as in? Absent mom or dead? Or the kind of "out of the picture" where you only hear from her at drop offs and pick ups?

It would be much more peaceful for us, and much healthier for the kids. It would break their hearts, though, so I would never wish for it....

It would be very sad for my stepchildren. They love their mother. The loss of their mother (however she "left" the picture) would probably have deep psychological consequences that would make our family life here much more complicated and difficult.

I can't predict what the result would be.

Harder! Honestly, she's a good mom who takes care of her children. I'd pull my hair out with two more kids full time.

It would suck if she were out of the picture, my dh wouldn't know who would take his kids.

If BM were just absent, just up and vanished one day, I'd be pretty stressed out, scared and worried. I'd probably find quite a bit of time trying to find her or her family and I'm sure SS's would be terribly upset. If I knew where she was and she just didn't want to be around then I'd feel sad for SS's and we would probably be living in "hell" with their attitudes and such. I'd be worried constantly that she would come back just as we get things all settled and calm ... relaxation would probably go out the window completely.

If she were dead then SS's would obviously be upset. I wouldn't know what to do or say or how to act. I'd hope their family would help them cope. I'd probably revolve much of my life, for at least a while, around getting them any help they need.

If we only heard from her at do/pu ... it probably wouldn't be too different from now but I don't really mind now all that much anyway. As odd as her calls are sometimes (calling to ask where a snow cone place is in our city?) they don't really cause any problems or do any damage.
