That’s a great story. πŸ™‚ That is how I am with my step-siblings and half-siblings. We are a hodge podge family but couldn’t picture it any other way. We range from age 31 to 7 (there are 7 of us). Crazy, right? But it works. Thanks for sharing.

@anne B: Thank you for this πŸ™‚

I have an amazing little bonus son (who I talk about on here all of the time, but why not share stories again, right?) He’s still just a little guy at almost 4 years old, but since he’s an only child he already acts like a teenager LOL. He brightens up this world so much and I feel so lucky to have him as part of my world.  It’s funny, but I couldn’t imagine this life without him. His mother and I get along for the most part, we have our battles but so does every relationship.

A couple weeks back him and I had some “bonus” time as we call it. He likes when him and I go out by ourselves. We went out to lunch

Waitress: “How are you”  Before I could even speak, Bonus son: “We’re doing good fanks. I’m taking my wife out for sumpin to eat (he thinks we all got married at the wedding), but I don’t got money in my pocket, she’s gonna have to pay. I’ll have chocolate milk and Sa(this is what he calls me) will have the man drink.”

The waitress starts laughing so hard that tears are rolling down her face. She looks at me – “Whats a man drink?” I explained: Arnold Palmer. I couldn’t ask for a better bonus son LOL.

We also cook together a ton too. It was the way I established a relationship with him in the beginning…

@anne B: Ahaha, it’s a very complicated dynamic. 31 = my two step sisters (twins) 28 = my step brother. Then there is me! Lol. Then my 17 and 14 year old biological brothers and my 7 year old adopted sister. It’s a pretty interesting mix. But hey, it works. πŸ™‚

Nice post πŸ™‚ I’m the product of a divorce as well, and I’ve had a terrible step-father (thankfully now out of the picture) and an awesome step-mother. I honestly think it has everything to do with the step-parent and the vibe they bring to the relationship and home. It doesn’t have to be “Choose ME over THEM or else”, and it’s sad because so many think that’s how it works. It sounds like you have a wonderful approach as a step-parent and are interested in sharing your life with your new children rather than expecting them to fit into it the way you want. Awesome πŸ™‚

No step kids (or kids for that matter) for us, but we are about to acquire 2 sisters, which we couldn’t be happier about!! I now have a new niece, and we spend a lot of time with them over the years. My FIL and their mom are getting married next year, so it will nice for it all finally be official!

@anne B: yes he lives with us. I moved in with DH before we were married and boy was that a shock. Adjusting from living by myself to a Man and a 14 month old was interesting.

Even when she does make us mad, she has some pretty severe issues, we never talk about it in front of him. My hubby and I just look at each other and table it until later.  This past Mother’s Day he made us each take him to get the other one something. He’s very aware of everyone’s role in his life. Probably because he doesnt remember when I wasn’t there.
