I came on this board to read a couple of posts. I have an amicable relationship with my son's SS. We are not friends but we can talk and be honest. Never fought. My ex and I do have our "moments." I have my son most of the time. He sees his dad EOW but sometimes once a month. Dad can't get off work
anyway, I had no idea how many women who have had to step up to be full time parents. I can't even fathom not seeing my child everyday.
My son's SM has 3 kids of her own. She is very good to my son. And I'm relieved. I sometimes wonder how she got stuck with my ex. (Joke).
Thank you to the stepmom's who get what it's all about. Happy, healthy kids.
