I'm bored, and a little nosey so I thought I'd ask. What role or roles do you play within your family?

Sometimes I will read a response in a post and think "yep, she's a BM" or "yep, she was the OW" or "yep she's the jilted EW/BM turned SM" etc etc etc (you get the picture lol)

Soooo instead of trying to figure everybody out, I thought I'd just ask. What is your role?

I'm mommy to an amazing little boy, Fiance' to his amazing daddy, and SM to his amazing little sister.

So that's me......who the hell are you :)

I don't play a role.  I am mom.  This isn't a game or some sitcom I'm living in... no role playing here...

I am not playing roles here. I am, in order of importance, mom, wife, stepmom. I have DD14 from my first marriage, DS with DH and he has two older boys from two previous relationships.

I am STB wifey to my fiance and can't wait =)

Soon to be CSM to his 3 1/2 year old daughter whom I love like crazy and we tend to have a lot of fun together, the three of us.

And soon to be SM to his older two kids, 10 and 7, whom we don't get to see enough but definitely treasure the time we have with them. I know DF misses them a lot and that can be hard but...better than not seeing them at all.

Not sure if that is what you wanted with roles. I just hope to be an important, special, loving person to always be there for them if they want me . =)

I'm sure I wouldn't much like your acronym, but that doesn't change the fact you used it. So, you not liking my post doesn't mean I'm playing a role with my kids.  I'm just a mom,  SM is just a sm.



I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts.

Congrats on having 2 kids in college! That's awesome.

And just for clarification I wasn't implying that every ex wife is jilted. I'm an ex wife also (no kids involved) and I'm far from jilted. So it wasn't a dig...and I apologize if it came off that way to ANY ex wife in the group


Quoting whatIknownow:

Mom to two kids in college. I am divorced from their dad, so I guess that makes me an ex-wife. The divorce was my idea, I left him. So, I don't think I qualify as "jilted." I have an amicable relationship with my Ex at this point.

Stepmom to two teenagers; my DH has custody, they go to their mom's EOWE. She is not very involved, but not uninvolved either. She's like, medium-involved. Not much participation in school or doctor stuff but goes to their ECs. They love her and she has a good relationship with them as far as I can tell. I think she just prefers to leave a lot of stuff to my DH (and me).  I have no relationship with BM, but my DH has a fairly good working relationship with her.

Congratulations on 11 years!

I've never understood how women leave their children. My son was a preemie and spent a month in the NICU, when I was released from the hospital I cried every single day because I hated leaving him behind (only for a few hours to go home sleep, eat, and pump milk) my heart would break every single time I had to leave my baby under the care of the NICU staff, so I can't understand how a woman picks up and just leaves their child. Different situations but still.


Quoting Tinkerbellmama:

SM to SD (12)

BM to DS (almost 10), DD (6) and DD (4)

Wife of DH (he's the father of all of our children). We've been married for going on 11 years. I was not the other woman, BM left DH when SD was born and left SD with DH. Although, BM has tried to claim several times that I was the OW and stole her family... BM is supposed to have EOWE, but takes one weekend a month by choice. She's very uninvolved, she's come to 3 of the 5 school meetings (IEP meetings and parent teacher conferences), she doesn't come to EC, she's never met SD's doctors, therapists, or specialists. I do all of that stuff, DH works more than full time and is very involved with the kiddos.
