WOW it is already Wednesday! Time for the Space Walk….
now with all the holiday activity, I really havent been "walking" much but I have a neat space that you might just like…(please click on the blog button at the top of the page to view the entire entry.)
Here is a really neat space from a stepmom and she lives out west in the USA.. She writes about her struggles as a very busy step mom who has to handle all the mom duties and what happens in her life. Here is a short section from her space…..
"We walk in the door after picking kids X and Y up from the school bus and it begins immediately….." I’m hungry, can I have a snack"…. "yes you can have some apples or oranges"….. "but I can’t cut them myself"….. all of this while trying to hook into my work email from home so I can finish my projects. "Can’t I have some cookies too?"….. you can have one cookie….. "but I want two"…. "I don’t like those cookies, can I have something else?"…. "that is all there is, you can wait until dinner." "Can I watch TV in the living room?"….. I don’t know why I get this question every day…. the living room is off limits… always has been always will be. "I don’t want to watch TV in the playroom….. I want to watch it downstairs"…. I haven’t even gotten to dinner time where Kid X and Kid Z like ranch dressing with their carrots, Kid Y does not, Kid Y does not like sauce on her pasta either but Kids X and Z do although Kid Z does not like cheese on top of his sauce but Kid X does, Kid X does not like milk and has water, Kids Y and Z have milk, Kid X likes oranges but not apples with dinner, kid Y only likes apples, and Kid Z usually spills his water or milk all over the table at least once during every meal…… this is about the time that my anxiety starts to swell in my chest and I start to turn into the wicked stepmother… and mother. The needs for these kids never end………. "
Give this space a visit today and see what else she has to say about her life as a
"Stepmonster"..I think you will like what she has to say……….
