Advice needed

September 8, 2013

So my due date is getting closer and this is our situation: we are expanding our house. It was suppose to be done within May. it was delayed and was supposed to be done in June. Then it was  suppose to be done in the beginning of August. To make a long story short, my husband is now working hard to have it done before I give birth. The carpenters are done but now there is that finishing work we aware suppose to be doing in the beginning of AuGust. With him being busy with the house I am busy with the kids. I can give birth any time and everybody tells me to rest. Rest? I have two kids to take care Of! My oldest step daughter has brought tons of friends home after she starred 5th grade. My youngest step son never complains but is not given the quality time he needs with his dad. The house is dirty and messy and I am running out if patience and energy. My step kids are also so much fun. So right now it is bitter sweet being stepmom. 

There are certain things I can not change. There are certain things I do not want to change. I can’t change the fact that our house project was delayed. I can’t change the fact that I have spend my energy on my step kids. I don’t want to change the visitation schedule as I consider the kids to be an equal part of the family. They need to be involved when the baby comes. However we have made sure grandparents will help us out, take the kids on a weekend trip. We have talked about new rules such as not bringing friends over right after I have given birth. 


Now I really want to hear from other experiences stepmoms out there. How did you handle being a stepmom and becoming a mom? How did you do it practically and emotionally? Any soothing words to give? Any happy stories out there of how a new baby made the stepmom role easier? 

I would love to hear from you!

  1. I don’t have any advice, but I’m thinking of you!

      • You should definitely write a post with advice after you give birth since it is an area where content seems to be lacking!

      • I agree. In general I fell most books and most advices are about how to do it in the first phase- the introduction phase. There is so little about the “ever after”. So I will definately write a post 🙂
