*waves and peeks in*
Hi everyone! It's been a long time since I've been in Blended since my Single Mommy road started. lol
I'm actually very happily involved with a loving man who has slowly been building a bond with my children. He is already able to tell you more about my children than their own father, but I'm sure that won't come as a shock to those of you who remember my posts about their father. (ps. it's JSMa ;-) )
But anyway, I came across this line today, and as some of you may also remember I never was in love with the term step... but this line has made me look at it in a totally different way, and I wanted to share it with all the awesome step parents here. :D
"(a step parent often)...step up and are the parents that they don't have to be."
That came across as such a profound statement. In that sense, step parent really becomes a badge to be proud of. I know when I was a step-parent I got really caught in the malestrom of the "evil stepmom" portrayal and really did not like the word... but this statement... yes... that sounds far more fitting. :-D
