What are your biggest struggles?
 
Your relationship with the ex? Your relation ship with the step-kids? What causes you the most stress?

As Silly as this sounds it's the commute I have. I have an hour and half commute to and from working when dropping my daughter off at her grandmothers. We are looking into buying a house about 30mins closer which will be much easier on me!

For me it's the relationship with his ex and my step daughter. She has no respect for anyone, including her own two bio parents. However, he feels that she should be treated differently because "she doesn't live here." Which I feel is a crock of bull. Her mother is a total different head ache that if I try to get into right now, it will ruin my day.q

Right now our biggest stress is the boys' mom. We're having the most difficulty with her.

It does make me thankful for the relationship I had with my ex, though. I mean, certainly in the beginning we had issues but we quickly put our kids first and parented together. Knowing how bad it can be, it makes me appreciate him more. Sounds strange, I know.

Our biggest struggle is how difficult dh's ex is to work with. She does not appreciate how great dh is with his daughter, he always shows up, pays on time, takes her extra when he can, buys her things if she needs help etc... and yet its all about the money for dh's ex. She NEEDS the c/s to live so she is very demanding about it. Dh has paid her every month on time with no trouble yet she just constantly brings it up and is very rude about it.
