I am divorced from my first husband. I am remarried and so is he. My ex and I had 1 child together...a daughter age 14. Ex and his wife have a 2 year old son together. We ALL get along really well. When dd's little brother was born I drove from SC to NC so she could see him a few days after he was born. I was not jealous or upset I was excited! Also dd is very independent and always has been. She does things on her own without my or her father's constant supervision. She respects her step-parents and listens to them like she does to us-which for a 14 year old that means she listens but doesn't actually "do" what we say LOL! I see a lot of moms post theyare constantly "watching" their children. Am I different because I have never done that?
