    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...

    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 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 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...
