Two weeks until the stepkids are here!
I'm feeling excited and anxious at the same time.
the last two summers were just, awful, we were in a small apt and when DH was at work I had no car to get them out of the house.
but now we have a bigger place with a big back yard and I have a car so hopefully they don't go stir crazy.
we're also planning lots of family outings like the zoo and six flags and muesums .
it's been 10 months since we last saw them so I know DH is so ready to have them here.
their birthday is the 18th and they'll be here the 24th so I'm throwing them a little birthday party on the 27th with DHs family so I'm excited for that.

I'm really really hoping we can get along better, BM tells them they don't have to mind me, and she doesn't discipline them AT ALL so of course when they get here and we don't let them trash everything its a battle :/

but I'm trying to put the past behind us, and have a good attitude.

Good luck I hope this summer will be a good one. I can't stand when the bio parents try to say that they don't have to listen to us step parents. I mean really!? Shouldn't the kids behave for any adult? Not just them? UGH

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

ugh, I too dislike the "dont mind the step parent" attitude. Just make sure your DH tells them that's not the case, and that they are to listen to you just as they would anyone else.

I hope you guys have a wonderful visit with them though! And I hope there aren't too many battles!
