I'm not a stepmom but raising my daughter with my partner and now our own son. One thing that sticks out from your post is a fear of having to give up the "single life" and put kids' needs ahead of...

I had my now 2 year old when my older daughter was a few months shy of 10 years old.  I LOVE the age gap - it's just been the most amazing thing. It makes such a difference that my daughter is...

How do you know the amount? I found mine and filed the form online to claim (old paycheck) but it doesn't say the amount I don't think.  Either that or I'm not looking in the right place.

I agree with StormBride.  My memory of what this was like as a kid was that the kids who did the sports, in particular, tended to be the popular crowd, tended to be cliqueish and often were mean....

My son will be 2 years old at the end of the month and I am reaching my limit with nursing. I nursed my daughter until she was almost 3 years old, but it was not nearly as intense as with my son....

I think counseling might be helpful because it usually is and it sounds like you guys have some deep (not necessarily bad) issues.  If I had to guess, I'd imagine your husband is feeling like you...

I think teens should be in a position to decide their activities.  I also think that there is a lot of personal development and enrichment that is not about "activities". - e.g., my daughter is a...

It gets easier.  I found the first 2 weeks the hardest.  I think it's because even though the intervals are short, your body has had NO conditioning and is starting from scratch.  You'd be amazed...

If you've only been married a year than that's a big deal. This means your son went 14 years without this guy in his life and is now 15 with only a 1-year old relationship.  I'd probably recommend...
