on being a stepmother

Surrounded by the sea of knocked up girls and women, many with their first child, they forget that though I did not have the three children very much in my life set up shop in my uterus for 40 weeks…I still have valid advice. I still know things. A uterus is not the thing that makes you a mother, and looking back now I see that I was kind of always a mother…I just have kids to share that with now.

  1. It bothers me when people consider ‘step’ parents less of parents. Any person who dedicates their lives to loving and raising a child, or children, is a parent.
