Another Side of Me

I love makeup, I love being girly, and I love to write about it.  But, I am also a step-mom to 3 beautiful young adults.  I have been in their lives for over 15 years now, and I have loved every minute of it.  We have grown together and I would love to share my story about them with you.

Let me begin by saying, I hate the term Step-mom.  Thanks to people like Disney, it has a negative connotation.  Be honest, when I say step-mom you picture an old lady, with a bend at her waist and bumps and lumps on her face.  In the movies, the step-mom doesn't care about the children, she is just working to get closer to the dad.  I never understood this.  In my humble opinion, if you are going to date someone with kids, you need to put those kids first.  You cannot and should not jump into a relationship with a single parent if you are not planning on taking care of those children as if they came from your own body.  Again, that is my opinion and that is how I live my life.  I don't think it is fair to anyone if you are not willing to make sacrifices and be there for the kids.

I love to share my story.  I am not going to say it has all been wonderful.  I am honest and real.  Is everyday a fairy tale??  Not at all.  But it can be one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever take on.

I would lvoe to hear from all the step-parents out there.  The ones who have made the sacrifices and have been there for the children.  I believe with all my heart we need to come together and let our voices be heard.  I would love nothing more than to change the view of step-parenting.  To turn it from a negative into a positive.
