We hear it all the time: there is no such thing as a normal family. Even though I had heard it, in my early 20’s I was certain that I would be like my parents. Married from a very young age, the center of my kids world, a constant fixture at softball games, fun family vacations, easy holidays…etc. But that was not to be the case. Now in my 40s I have come to epitomize a very common version of the modern family.
Recently remarried I am the proud mom of three girls and step mom to a teenage girl and boy. And what might not be as normal is that they all get along amazingly and my husband I are pretty much obsessed with all of our kids. They have differing ages and personalities but we all love being together because when we are it is instantly a fun group and no one is left out. We all call our family #partyofseven.
I am looking forward to sharing with you some of the struggles and triumphs of being a mom, a ex wife, a second wife and a stepmom. It isn’t easy and there is no rule book. It can also be challenging, yet I believe it can be fun at times. Join me through this journey called motherhood and feel free to share with me any questions or issues you want discussed.
