hi girls, my name is jen, ive been a member for a long time now but been mia for awhile now. life has def changed for me. I have been through a divorce and raising three kids on my own. i have been with my boyfriend for a year and a half now and he has one son.

My dilemma is my oldest daughter who is almost 9 hates my boyfriend. everyday she wishes me and her dad would get back together. my bf son is starting to think the same way except he doesnt want me with his dad. Its been a whirlwind around here.

background info: i divorced my husband three years ago. Me and my ex husband didnt see much of each other so i was left to take care of the kids on my own. my bf seperated from his wife 6 years ago. as of the last 4 months ago, my bf ex hasnt seen there son. my bf has had full cusotdy of there son since he was 6 mos. so up until we got together it was just him and his dad. me and my bf moved in with each other a year ago and have become a blended family.

Being a stepmommy has not been all i thought it would all cracked up to be. also bringing our two familys together has been the hardest thing ive encountered yet. but im hoping to finally get some opinions from other moms who know what im going through

Welcome back!

I'm yet to physically blend our families, but I can imagine that what you're going through is normal, and it might just be a case of riding it out....

We are moving in together in January, so will have an (almost) 9yo, 6yo, 5yo & 2yo, and I can see it's not going to be as straight forward as I would like!
