My name is Meggan and I am 26 years old I have been with my boyfriend for just about 2 years. He has two beautiful smart little girls from a previous marriage. We have them full time, sometimes I get very frustrated and I am not sure how to handle everything.
Emma is 8 and smart and funny, but has no manners and I feel very unsure on how to get her to listen to me and I don't want to cross a line that is not mine to cross.
Ella is 4 and silly and stubborn and in the "why?" phase. Ella is a little easier to deal with as far as correcting her. But again I do not want to cross a line that is not mine to cross.
I love these girls to death, as far as I am concerned when it comes to them and me, even if we don't share DNA. I would do anything for them and help them with anything that they need.
I feel completely lost sometimes, like I don't matter to them and by no means do I want to or expect to ever replace their mom. But I don't know what to do. I try to talk to my other half about it but I'm not sure he understands. I feel like breaking down and crying.
Any tips or help would be greatly appreciated.
