    My stupid husband just told me he is taking his

    bio daughter (flying) her and himself tomorrow to see his parents. Just told my three girls they aren't going...just him and her. I love seeing how hurt my kids are and how tough they are acting...and how lofty his daughter is acting too. Super super awesome. Did I mention I...

    Failing Miserably

    I am a stepmom to 4 kids ranging from early teens to late 20's. I have been with my husband for 14 years and married 9 years. I feel my story is a 'one minute up and the next minute down' kind of story. Throughout the years my stepkids have more or less readily accepted me...

    I am sick of my husband blowing me off all the

    time for his daughter. And I really hate how the one that lives here sets it up on purpose. She is mean to my kids when he's not home. When he's about to be home she starts homework or housework right when he pulls up. Points out what my kids do wrong. Corrects them in front of...
