My horrible confession

My husband tells me often how grateful he is that I've developed a bond with his children and how much that means to him. His kids text me and talk to me almost every day and the ex too thinks I like them.

The truth is I don't. Not at all and I can't tell you why. They are good kids I just don't like them around. They are welcome at our house anytime they want and they are here almost every weekend. But I just can't get past the feeling that they are intruding. That they don't belong here. Maybe it's because I don't have children of my own so I don't know what it's like to have kids constantly underfoot.

I feel awful for thinking like this and I'm grateful that I've been able to fake it for 3 years now and I hope I'm never found out. I just don't know why I don't have feelings for them.

I don't think its jealously, I don't mind that they spend time with their dad I just wish they would spend time with him and leave me out.

My step kids havent been over in month, (hubby and ex are having issues) and im actually loving it. They are ok for the most part, but its been nice not to have them around.

I understand not having time for yourself. Is that it?

Maybe that's it. I don't have time to just decompress on the weekends or sleep in or just veg in front of the TV. There is always someone who needs to come into our bedroom right then and there or needs a ride or needs this and maybe I'm just overwhelmed with that.
