Too Nieve to Be a Step-momBeing 23 and a step-mother is not what I dreamed as a child. I never thought one day I'm going to meet the man of my dreams and he shall be an emotional mess. Plus, have a daughter under a year (or just shy of)
"Cheeks" (as I lovingly call her) was five months old when I met her. Being a female I of course had a instant emotional attachment to her. I've adored her since that day. She's been an ever growing source of joy and giggles. Of course, with ever pro there is a con; that's cons name is Bio-Mom. I do have to be thankful that the drama she has brought around hasn't been as bad as other people.
Since I'm still new at this whole game and not a parent myself, I'm still struggling to find even footing. How does one do that? Or is there anything that make it easier? The topic of being a step-mom puts me into a bi-polar state; I'm over joyed when we have her and lack enthusiasm when she not with us.
Perhaps, the best way to put it all is I'm overwhelmed and sometimes doubt the role itself.
