That's a bit rough. At 33 weeks pregnant, I'd be crawling up the walls to get some time to myself, whether with my child or step children haha. It's no fun when someone pulls plans out from under your feet no matter what the situation.

I'm not saying that she doesn't deserve a break. I would be directing my frustration at the mother though, it sounds like she is the one making things difficult. I'd be pretty upset if I had kids that weren't my current partners and he wanted more time off from them - it sounds like you need to explain your reasoning calmly and clearly, otherwise he might just think you don't want them around for no particular reason.

I sure as hell know I sometimes need a break from my own kids, that doesn't mean I don't love then, it Means I'm human.
Goodness me, I'm sorry you've been made to feel bad OP, I don't have step kids but I was a step kid growing up. Its a hard balance, I really Hope your DH supports you and let's you have the break xo

I'm not a step parent and I get it.
Yes by marrying him she took on those kids in some ways BUT they have 2 parents to meet their needs and that's what those parents should be doing. She's a step parent she didn't adopt them.

Gee I'm sorry to have started a semi war. I don't want to offend or upset anyone.
I'm grateful that those who are, and are not, step parents, can see where im coming from.
As another post said "I am their step parent, and yes I took on the responsibility of helping to raise them, but I did not adopt them"!! These kids do still have a BM and BF.
This whole situation has made things terribly tense here at home, but I am just going to have to deal with that. I hate that I'm being made out to be a nasty woman, which I'm sure is exactly what my DH thinks i am
Lookin forward to an uncomplicated week.
Thanks for your support ladies
