I am new to this site & well @ being a step mom in general, now I'm not technally a step mom quiet yet but I can see myself being one (legally) some day with the man I'm with & his 2 year old little girl :) now I am a mom of a teenage boy whom I gotta tell ya is the bessssssst kid ever lol he's so wonderful I couldn't be more blessed with a teen, whom happens to have a step mom who i get along great with, she respects him, loves him & most importantly keeps him safe, but being a step mom I've noticed is one of the toughest things I've yet to experience. Any how sorry to babble on, my step daughter is two & her parents only communicate through emails after a battle in court the mother is the most difficult person I know & she does it all out of spite ive seen email & how she is just so bitter & evil. Now she does not know of me yet, we decided to keep that to ourself until we move in together I guess after my long story I'm seeking for advice on how to deal with her that I don't let her consume me in general the stress the arguin etc. helppp!!
