I'll join the ranks of SM's here. I'm a full time SM of my DH's older three, so together here we have his SS17, SS12, SD10, mine DD13,DS9, ours DD4, DS2, DD8 months. Pretty crazy group at times, but we all get along for the most part, and I'm momma hen here and they know it. When SS17 gets home the end of summer, he's gonna know it too! He's had it easy the past months he's been here.
'Technically' I am SM to my wonderful SD of three years. I am second wife of my DH. My co-wife is living with us and we are having best of relations. I have two bio children - DS is 43 months and DD is 28 months. Luckily, we are a very close knit family. The children so far are not able to distinguish between their real and 'step' moms as we have been sharing "everything". They just adress my co-wife 'elder mom' and me 'younger mom' - my own bio-children included.
Here's a question for all the stepmamas here - how do all your kids get along? Was it really hard when your kids met his kids?

Dh has son from his first marriage. I didn't have any kids from my first marriage. We married in 2004.
Stepson is now 9 years old and was 8 when our daughter was born. We are expecting another daughter around August 14th.
We've encourage stepson to be proud of being a helpful older brother. Our daughter admires and adores him. He seems to like that.
