Hi everyone! I've been a member of the Sept 2011 due date club for a couple months and am just now venturing around to some of the other boards. I'd love to join you guys here!

I have two girls from a previous marriage - they are 5 and 9. Their dad and I had a pretty bad marriage that finally ended in 2007. Things were very rocky for a while with the kids and the ex but have finally settled down as much as I think they will. I have sole custody, he has visitation (quite a bit). My ex is as childish, immature, and selfish as he was when we were together so issues constantly arise between us. It's exhausting.

I remarried last year and now have two step sons - 6 and 7. My DH and the ex share custody, so the boys are with us 50% of the time. We have a fairly good relationship with his ex though we do have our share of differences.

Can't wait to get to know you all better!
~ Shannon

Welcome Shannon!

I'm Rachel. I have two from my first marriage (Sarah, 22 and James, 19). He has two from his first marriage who we have custody of (William, 12 & Clayton, 10). Together we have Daniel, 5 and another little boy due in August.

We have our share of problems with his ex, but with mine, things are fine. I think mostly because my kids are adults now.

Looking forward to getting to know you!
