Why did I start this blog?
It is simple really. Well, maybe not.
Two years ago, I was a single mom with two kids. A son, and a daughter, respectively. I was struggling along, writing articles about single parenting, helping other moms and dads out, fighting custody issues with friends who had them, and well, just generally focusing on the whole single parent life.
However, a short time later, I met this amazing, wonderful guy. And by the luck of the deal, he had three daughters of his own. After we moved in together, I immediately became the mother of five, and have been striving ever since to become a better parent to each one.
We both have custody of all five children, and they reside with us full time. Yes, we are one shy of the Brady Bunch. I love every moment of being a full time mom to five, and wouldn’t have it any other way. However, at times it can get complicated.
This idea was born in November of 2006, when I just needed a place to vent and complain about being a mom from time to time. But what it became after that, was the need and the desire to learn everything I could about blended families.
It is my desire, to share it with you. So hop on, it’s going to be a bumpy ride!
