My Daddy also raised 3 little girls… Funny Huh?
But I love my sisters. Never do I ever refer to them as my half-sister.
They are not half of me, they are all of me. I lovemy family it’s so big and so full of support and love. When I think about giving up,…
This is hard. I know I’ve said it a lot but, this is so fucking hard!
I used to get my angry and pissed at things that would happen within this weird family. But now I am getting so hurt.
You see, when you become a stepparent, your whole life changes. It’s…
Okay this is a question, I figured all you Steps would know what I’m talking about. Okay maybe more than one question.;)
How do you control your anger, when you know the kids that you love and take care of, are going to their other families house talking…
Kids can break hearts too…
I’ve always been a very sensitive/emotional person. I cry during every single movie I watch, literally every single movie. I get my feelings hurt very easily, but I also get angry very quickly.
I am the type of person that lets little things get the best…
Alright so I confess……………………. I HATE WAKING UP IN THE MORNING EARLY AS HELL TO TEND TO MY KIDS
CONFESSION #2 I HATE WHEN MY KIDS WAKE ME UP AT NIGHT
NOT because I’m losing sleep BUT because my kids look spooky as hell at night when they wake up scared!!!!
My girls do NOT even wake me up……….
Have you ever woken up in the middle of night scared as hell because you feel a presence in the room or someone watching you??
ITS WAS PROBABLY MY KIDS!!!
They don’t try to, you know, maybe shake me awake or say “Paloma”in a whisper until I wake up…
These girls stand next to my bed (as close as possible to me) with their head down and their bed head all in their face, like The Grudge, and stare at me.
F R E A K Y
Then when I open eyes they say “paloma, can I sleep with you?”
Honestly I don’t even like to look at them when they scare me with that shit. I just do not make eye contact, I scoot over in the bed, say “get in” and go to sleep and act like nothing happened.
Are my Kids the only ones who do this? Should I Be worried?
A difficult part of my life, or should I say my relationship, is wanting my boyfriend to understand
»»WHAT. THE. HELL. IT. FEELS. LIKE.««
to be a step-parent.
For 5 yrs. I’ve bent over backwards for these kids after their mother left them on our doorstep with all their things in tote.
I mean, I don’t have my own kids, but a child’s love for their biological mother is astonishing…. Its so sad to me how much these kids love their mom without understanding the important point that their not a priority to her.
I admit it is very selfish of me because all I do is literally
think about me.
"Do they know how much I do for them, spend on them, live my whole young adult life around them?!?!?!?"
and I always want my boyfriend to know how it feels, when they talk about “mommy this. Mommy that..” I just want to scream
MOMMY WHOS IN JAIL!!!
MOMMY WHO WAKES YOU UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AND KEEPS YOU AWAKE BECAUSE SHE HEARD A FUNNY NOISE WHILE HIGH?
MOMMY WHO LET HER 3 LITTLE DAUGHTERS AROUND EVERY SINGLE MAN SHES EVEN CONSIDRERED DATEING!
MOMMY WHO FORGOT HER DAUGHTERS FIRST DAYS OF SCHOOL
MOMMY WHO WAS SOO HIGH SHE WASNT IN THE HOSPITAL WHEN HER BABY HAD STITCHES.
how can you love that?? :(
and I want my man to feel what its like when you raise another women’s kids. What it feels like to have someone cry for someone else. I want him to understand what it feels like to have another woman’s letters sitting in MY house. Her pictures hanging in their rooms. I hate it. I know they’re young, but I wish I could still tell them the truth. I wish I could open their eyes for them I wish, I wish, I wish………..
But everyone tells me "its okay Paloma when they grow up they will see who was really their for them.”
WELL WE’LL SEE!!!!!!!!!!!!
DIY Thrifted Dishes Bird Feeder and Bird Bath from Morena’s Corner. I’ve gotten a message asking for more outdoor DIYs, and these are just a variation on the “glue and stick” cake stands.
Omg I’m doing this for sure
A sweet little DIY for expecting mommies. I’ve found that as I’m getting older I’m getting invited to more and more ‘adult’ things like bridal and baby showers. I’m going to a baby shower this weekend and wanted to make something special for the mommy to be. There’s always a million gifts for baby but what about mama!?
I came across this idea on Pinterest and loved it as it’s so easy and can be customized to meet the mama’s needs/your price range.
In mine I included:
- Lip Balm (I couldn’t resist getting ‘Baby Lips’ for the occasion) - Hospitals are drying.
- Reese’s - Some of her favorite candies to snack on.
- Face Wipes - To stay looking fresh and glowing.
- Hand Sanitizer - For when holding the little one.
- Socks - Matching mommy and baby socks for the hospital.
- Lotion - Again to keep skin smelling pretty and moisturized.
I placed everything neatly in the jar, wrapped a pink bow around it, and then using a cut out for what really would be a scrapbook I labeled and super glued it on.
Other things you could include which I did not are: sugar free mints (sugar is drying), coins for the dad to get a snack, earplugs, travel size shampoo/conditioner, hair ties, etc etc.
Viola! An easy and sweet way to treat a mama! xx
