to all of you step moms who have crazy as heck bio moms...
Be jealous of my Ex's wife.
she is one of my best friends.
my ex see's our DS whenever he wants. If DS wants to call his dad, day or night I call him. If i know he is in class/work I will shoot him a text telling him DS wants to talk. and I let them talk their boy talk for however long they want (at least until 10 minutes till bed time then its time to say love you and get off of the phone.)
I call/text his dad with updates from ds school because I want to and I know that his dad wants to know. If he wants to go to confrences with me I let him, same for doctors apointments and all that other good stuff.
on Christmas eve my ex, his wife, and their 2 boys stayed the night with me and DS so that both of us could enjoy christmas morning with DS.
it wasnt always this easy though, I used to be your typical crazy CM bio mom. I wanted things done MY way or NO way. then I got over it and grew up. I wanted DS to have all of the perks of his parents being together with out the fall down drag out fights that would have happend if his dad and I were together. and I got lucky and it worked. and DS is better off for it. so here's to you guys for putting up with some out right crazy and yet you keep on loving those kids and their dads. and heres to hoping that the BM ends up with the same thought process that I had, Fighting doesn't work in the best intrest of the kids so even if you hate each other fake it for your kids. they will thank you for it later.
