Blended Family Failure

Hello, I'm new to this forum. I need an outlet and a stranger's opinion, that's an outsider. I have been with my husband for almost 9 yrs and married 4 out of the 9.

They tell me I’m over dramatic and crazy

Hello all! I have been married for 6 yrs- together for 9yrs. My husband is the BD to my SD. She’s a teenager that wanted to live with us and we got custody. She’s been here for a few years now.

Ugh....sigh...more of the same

We had some time without the skids this past week and life was good. DH and I got along so well. Skids come this weekend and he's just a totally different man when they are here.

My Pre-teen SS is perpetually grounded. He messes up daily, gets bad grades at school, is too lazy to do anything w/o being asked like clean his room.

Freak out

Partner has a very difficult mother who has taken a long time to set boundaries
She thankfully lives abroad so we don't see her that often

Becoming sassy with the Skids

I’ve always been a mildly sarcastic person. But never with kids lol... Except for apparently now.

SD4: were not family
Me: cool, guess that’s one less person I have to do laundry for.

My holiday wishes

I grew up in a family where my mother had 9 siblings who also had many children. Holidays were huge affairs with so many people and lots of food. No one had much money, but everyone pitched in.
