Hello!! I posted once before on here about a immediate issue I needed your ladies opinions about. But I need to introduce myself correctly now lol.

Im Megan. 30 yr old sham to Christian (12) Emilee (9) Dakota (7) and Brooklynn (5mths). I live in Central IL and am part of the April 12 playgroup.I am going through a divorce on good terms with the ex. We had been together since we were 16&17. I am with my best friend of the last 9 years. We have our ups and downs and I think a lot of it is because this not is only new to us.. but the kids too. He has two boys 12 & 4. Has all sorts of baby mama drama. Which is getting better now that she has her own place, a job ect. (they lived together for a year post break up)

His 12 year old was our most trying experience. Was being influenced negatively by bm. We have shown him lots of love and consistency and structure and now we are seeing the results. Bf (James) has had a ton of stress not only from homelike but job ect. It has taken a toll on his health the last few mths. I am trying to be supportive but sometimes its hard. He's one of those guys that when he's stressed/doesn't feel good ect he gets really crabby. Its made my patience grow a mile long..but we are getting there.

We were going to move in together but with the turn of events with James' 12 year old we decided to hold off, fix things with that..fix things with us and see where it takes us.

I think thats about it for now. Slow and steady is the approach we are on now.
