    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...

    Go Back to Wherever You Came From...

    I have a soon-to be-step-mother. She is a disaster... a complete alcoholic and jealous of my dad having another female in his life. I am no longer welcome in my dads home when she is there, despite my dad and I being closer than we've ever been. The story is much longer than this...

    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...

    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...

    "You've got her looking like a straight up

    TRAMP!" My stepfather was not pleased when he received the latest photos of me and emailed my stepmother to let it be known. One of the pictures showed me in a mini-skirt and sleeveless top in none matching colors along with make up. "Half of her chest is out! Put some...

    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...

    I Am Here....

    I have a stepmother who refuses to acknowledge that I am her stepson. She pretends that I don't exist and ignores me completely. She has a beautiful daughter between she and my father, who she loves and cares for with all her heart. I am so happy for her for that, but I still...

    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...

    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 Love Her

    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...

    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...
