    Default Rules for Step-mums

    As it says, what are the rules for step-mums? I am sure we can think of plenty. I will start....



    1. Dont even think about mentioning that you may not love your stepkids.

    2. Finally admit that your stepchild sleeps on the floor in a room under the stairs. That is when he/she finished his/her jobs like massaging the sm, giving her a pedicure and sorted the peas she threw on the floor...

    3. Don't ever complain about how hard it is because you knew he had kids when you met him

    4. Don't even think about asking the children to keep their room clean, make their beds or dress themselves, their life is hard enough

    oh so true
    6. If the stepchild calls you a stupid c*** then only cause his/her life is so damaged by being a child of separated parents... It is even easier when one of the parents die!

    Of course you can walk around in your undies/bra/nude or breastfeed/check cracked nipples/talk about your constipation. It's YOU that has got the hang ups, they are part of the family!

    Don't ever ever admit that you love your biological children more, you must have deep seated issues if you can't accept a child as your own every second weekend.

    Can't believe I forgot that one!!!!

    10. Dont plan to do anything unless the stepkids are with you. This includes going to the movies, bowling, on holidays or even to the library. We all know life stops when they go home.

    Oh also, please don't forget to spoil them rotten to compensate the pain. It is their nature given right to have twice the presents, holidays etc.
    Schedule according to bm. She deserves her time off anytime on short notice, you don't.

    11. Make sure you don't do anything with your own kids that you haven't done with the step kids otherwise you will be favoring your own children.

    12. Don't forget to treat the step kids as your own but remember you are not the real parent so don't think you have any parental rights.

    13. Step parents should never complain about the step child, this only allowed to be done by the birth parents as they have the right to be annoyed by their child but a step parent does not.

    14. Forget every natural instinct to want to enjoy things for the first time with your husband as he will have already done everything before he met you. Oh, you should also be happy about this because you get to enjoy time with his child as compensation.

    15. Learn to enjoy dealing with his ex wife, this is a character building experience & you should appreciate the personal growth this has a brought into your life.
