Hello all!

As stated, I am new to this forum idea but think it is just what I need.

I think my situation is pretty unique, and most people do not understand it or give me funny looks when they find out so here goes...
DH and I met over 7 years ago, he had DSD, we married in 2006, and had our DD, that lasted about a year or so and got divorced, because we were both young and stubborn...
I moved in with my parents, 4 hours away from him and basically raised my DD and went back to school for the next 4 years...
...meanwhile DH (was EXH at the time) had two more daughters....that fell apart about a year ago...
...last year (Jan '12) we fell back together, and literally I was trying to "help" with the situation of him and EXGF breaking up and it turned into us still loving and caring for each other.

So June 2012, I bought a house, and he moved in with me and our DD...needless to say it has been a challenge. He hasn't been a consistant part of her life the past 4 years (she's only 6 yo) and now 3 step-sisters are around plus mom isn't all to herself.

To sum up there are 4 girls...YES 4!
Hadley (7) his
Kylee (6) OURs
Harmony (3) his
and Ava (2) his

Recent topics for us have been he doesn't get my parenting style of OUR DD. And obviously all of this has to be sorted out prior to any other kid(s) in the future. (I want one more as I only have one biological child...and he wants a boy but thinks the odds are against him)

Any thoughts, comments, or questions are more than welcome. Hopefully I will begin to get to know all of you too!

Welcome! Plenty of room at the table to vent and gripe, settle in!

Dude the odds might totally be stacked against him on that boy.
