I'm new to this and just needed to vent.
I'm a step mum of a 10 year old girl and a 8 year old boy and I have a 1 year old bio daughter.
I'm very sad as the older these kids are getting the less respect they have for their Dad and I and everything we do and say goes back to their mum and not exactly in the way it happened. Little Miss SD10 has been causing me much sadness, she's a good kid but loves causing conflic between her mum and us.
I've been with DH since 2003 and have watched the kids grow. They were sweet and loving and now they aren't so nice.
I'd like to think I treat them just the same as before Sian was born.
I just feel that lately I can't do anything right by them. They don't like my food anymore and they always treat me rude.
DH doesn't want to talk to their mum as his scared to comfort her incase she takes them away, and doesn't want to talk to the kids as he says they kids and are problably not doing it on purpose.
Bio Mum has been really rude. Making plans for the kids on the afternoons that we pick them up and not having any consideration.
We have them every second weekend and I'm considering taking the bub's and going away next time we have the for the weekend just so that I don't have to be treated bad and be up-set by their little comments.
Also Dh and I flight everytime we have the kids because he lets them do everything and I say that their are rules at our house and it shoul'd be broken because they are here.
So if I go away we wont fight!
Wish the kids went back to being the nice kids they were last year.
