I'm Amanda. I'm 29. I live in NW Missouri with my DF, my 3 boys from a previous marriage, and DF's daughter from a previous marriage. Luckily, we both have sole custody of our kids which (I think) makes things a little easier. My oldest son is 7 and in first grade. My 2 younger boys are 5 year old identical twins. My soon-to-be stepdaughter is 4. DF and I are getting married on Valentine's Day in Hawaii. It will be my first trip without kids in quite awhile and will give us some much needed alone time (although I'm sure I will miss the kids like crazy and worry about them constantly!). I am a full-time college student working on my B.A. in Sociology. I am also starting a job as a school bus driver next month. I get along well with my ex. He takes the boys every other weekend. He left me for someone else last summer and, oddly enough, I ended up becoming great friends with his girlfriend. My ex comes over for birthdays, holidays and other special occasions. The kids see us getting along which is much more than I ever could have hoped for when we got divorced. I think we are one of only a few couples that actually rode to their divorce hearing together! DF's ex has just started getting visitation with her daughter. So we will see how that goes. I'm hoping I can get some advice on how to deal with a 4 year old who acts out on occasion due to situational changes.

Welcome to the board. You are very lucky to get along so well with the ex. Wish I could say the same. I never speak to my ex and can't stand his. If she were open to acting like an adult I would have no issues with her. But sadly that is not the case.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤
