okay, so my partner and i had a baby 6 months ago....ds is the light of my life and i love every minute i spend with him.
dp has a dd who just turned eight. i am a sahm to my ds, dp's dd lives with her mother most of the year...we get a few weekends....but she will be with us for the whole summer which means that i will be her primary care provider all day everyday.
she is a sweet girl, i have known her for half her life, she loves her brother but is a little uncertain about me (not her fault....dp and i have split and reconciled many times over the last four years) she is very open to the idea of having a step-mom and i can't see too many more years going by before dsd will blow off her mom and wan't to live full time with her dad.
i am absolutely dreading this summer....selfishly i don't want to give up the intimacy that i have with my ds getting 1-1 attention all the time, and while i love dsd i don't always like her......(again not her fault but a product of her environment over the years)
how do i move past my dread to prepare for this summer?
help me please!!!!
