    Alone And Lonely

    my mother passed away 8 years ago. my dad remarried 5 years ago. Things were okay, I guess. My brother and I weren't really close to her and my dad didn't ask us our opinion of her nor told us he was marrying her until details were all settled in. Things were really awkward...

    Gained Her On My Birthday

    Yes, my Nineteenth birthday gift was a brand new Stepmom! Many would probably resent this, but I like HER ok, so it wasn't SOOOO bad. She's too quiet for my taste at times, but we get along fine. I'm glad my Dad is with her; she's brought much happiness into his life. And she...

    I'll Never Forget What She Said.

    Upon our first meeting my step-mother acted very kind and I hoped that she could be the homemaker woman that my mother wasn't. My father told me to be feel conferrable around everyone and that my two step siblings and two half sibling would love me. They were all very friendly...

    Same Old Story

    My story isn't very dramatic. A lot of people have worse things to deal with; alcoholics, abuse, neglect, etc... I just have a step who i don't like. For many reasons, don't get me wrong! Legitimate one's, too. But i know i could have it a lot worse. I have a step-mother, Amy...

    My Wonderful Stepmother

    I was lucky enough to have a stepmother growing up, since when I was about 4. Well, she used to be my babysitter before and decided that, since she was now my father's wife, she should take it out on my sister and I. This girl was a piece of art. Her method of communication was...

    My Fathers Wife

    That is what I prefer to call her.  I just don't like anything about her.  I know that it is common, and that people say it is because she was trying to replace my natural mother, or taking away from my relationship with my father....... but seriously.  I don't...

    My Bonus Mom :))

    I don't even call her my stepmother. She is my mom or my other mom when i talk about her. I don't call her mom to her face, but she might as well be. She's been around since i was very very little, around 3 or 4 years old. She and my dad got married in October of '05 or '06. I...

    Since September

     My dad remarried in September. His wife is really nice, and she owns a bookstore, which is basically like him marrying Santa Claus to me! I don't have a lot of contact with my dad, so I don't really know his wife that well yet, but so far she seems pretty cool. :) She has...

    My stepmother

    I despise my step-mother. Growing up, I had nothing. The kids she had with my dad had everything handed to them on a sliver platter. My mom had to work two jobs just to make sure we had shelter and food on the table (and at times we were lucky for the food) They went on...

    My step mother has been married to my dad for 6 years now.  She is a wonderful lady, especially considering my last stepmother was evil (and I don't speak poorly of many people).  She is truly my dad's soul mate, and I'm glad they found each other.  All the...
