Hi, I have an 8 yo stepdaughter, an 8yo daughter from a previous marriage and a 6 mo baby boy with my new husband. I am 34yo, on 12 months maternity leave and my baby Toby is very grizzly today. The thing that frustrates me the most is being home all day and not even being able to do the housework.............

How old are your kids? We only get the kids every
second weekend.. But life is pretty busy.
Yak soon Caz

Hi Caz, the girls get on wonderfully which is a great help for me. They are so different in every way so I'm pleased that they get on. We have my stepdaughter every 2nd weekend and every school holidays so I guess that helps, they don't get sick of each other. Toby is just getting his 5th and 6th teeth at the moment and then he has to have his injections next week so I have at least another 2 weeks of a grizzly baby......oh well the end is near!!!!!!!! My first job out of school was for a Cancer Research Institute at the Royal Melbourne Hospital (not as a nurse - secretarial) and I admire you for going back to work after 6 months to an emotionally draining job like that. How often do you have your stepchildren and who looks after Cameron when you're working? My maternity leave ends 1st March so I have to make a decision after Christmas about returning to work or not.........don't want to if I can help it but you don't always get what you want.
Toby's sleeping at the moment so I'm off to do some ironing. 'Til next time,

Hi there, yes, that is a big load for someone, no matter what age. But your partner is lucky to have found you and your kindness and love you have been able to give his children. It is a hard enough to meet someone new then there family, but you also get his wife who has passed ,family. I take my hat to you my girl. My partners wife,had left him for another man. Then when I came onto the scene of course everything changed. His family kind of happy but not. Two years down the track I have a better relationship with his ex-wife and new husband. We have the kids every 2nd weekend and through the holidays. We try to work out the best for everyone. Our little boy cameron has just turned one. I work as a pallitive care nurse, I work 8 shifts per f/n. So between creche and dad looking after him on weekends we get by. If you would like my e-mail I would be happy to send it to you, I will wait for your reply. Take care Carol

i would love to talk to you some time.. its nice to talk to people in similar situations as none of my close friends are and can be hard to talk about.. look forward to hearing from you.. my email address is [email protected]

I am a 35yr old mother of 5children all up. I have a step daughter 14, step son 11, three children of my own from previous marriage, 9 yr old daughter and a 7 year old son. My new husband and I have also had a daughter together, she is 10 months old. I find it can be very frustating when dealing with dicipline of my step children at times as I feel I don't comfortable diciplining them as I would my own children for fear of what their mother may say or do. My husband also feels the same way when having to dicipline my children. I agree that at times it can be frustrating but there are also a lot of good times to be had with a large family. We have all the children every 5th weekend and during the school holidays, and at other times. (long complicated story. custody battles, court hearings etc.) If you would like to chat more about the frustration and fun of having a blended family you can email me on [email protected]

Hope to hear from you.
