- I am super proud of this girl! This week we have decided to really focus on her potty training. It's only Tuesday I know but she's only worn diapers for bed time. We went to king soopers today and I was worried she might have an accident since she probably wouldn't want to ask to use the potty. Her favorite word is no and she can be super stubborn so most times we gotta force her to use the toilet. BUT the second we walked into the store she let us know she had to go potty! I was so freaking happy!! To really motivate her training she has only been allowed candy/sweets each time she uses the potty. If she doesn't go then no candy and so far it's working. Any parents out there have any other ideas on how to make potty training easier/more fun for her?!? #pottytraining #parenthood #parentadvice #toddler #twoyearold #stepmom #stepmoms #stepmomsrock

- Took the day off from working out yesterday because my psoriatic arthritis had my knees and wrist feeling pretty bad. Back at it today.

- Millennial Stepmom: πŸ—£πŸ’‹ #millennialstepmoms #stepmoms Can you relate? To be more specific (as I can personally relate to this) BM is relatively nice when interacting with me. Her negative side comes from passive aggression. She is aware that I buy all of SS9s clothing, shoes, etc. for our house, yet she purposefully takes anything that goes to her house and will put SS9 in clothes that do not fit him when coming back to our house. Some of you might be thinking "well they are SS9s things so it should not matter which house the items exist" which is true except it ends up being a larger expense on our end, I don't think she uses the stuff but just holds onto it, and I think SS9 is aware that she does this. Most recently, I bought him new shoes and when they went to her house she sent him back over in shoes that were too small. He said "Mom made me wear these and I told her they don't fit me." Now, DH has had this conversation with her. Her response is "just don't send over anything that you want to keep." So as far as toys go he can take and leave anything he wants, with clothing bc of this situation I pick and choose what to layout for him (trying to make him as unaware of this as possible). It seems ridiculous that this is even an issue #sigh

- πŸ’•Don't wait to you have reached your goal to be proud of yourself, be proud of every step you take towards reaching that goal.πŸ’• . I'm sure a handful of you guys looked at the progress pictures and were not impressed and that is okay, it's my journey not yours. . I am so excited about these progress pictures because there is more to the story than just the week numbers attached to them. . Week 1 was when we had Ax for our summer visitation, we were at home but we definitely were enjoying our time with him and letting him pick our meals and our treats. I worked out 5 days a week that week so that was my mini goal that I reached and celebrated! . Week 2 was a week of traveling, we were at the camper and visiting family while we enjoyed our last week of summer visitation with Ax, so you bet I enjoyed camping food and adult beverages. My mini goal that week was to push play 5 days and watch my portions of junk food and I accomplished that goal! . Week 3 was transitions back into it just being allen and myself which may sound easy to those of you who don't experience the back and fourth of a kiddo but for those that do you know it takes some time to readjust. And that is exactly what I have done! I prepped my food, I pushed play 5 times, and I listened to my body and meditated a lot! So this week again I accomplished my mini goals! . So the photos may not always tell the whole story, so let's all try and slow down this week and celebrate our mini goals which will eventually help us accomplish our big goals!

- Millennial Stepmom: πŸ—£True or False? Dear#millennialstepmoms / #stepmoms to give an example of one of many #issues: Last year DH received a call from SS9s school asking to come in for a meeting with the principal. The school proceeded to explain that they felt SS9 was not living in BMs town but rather ours. DH and BM explained they are #divorced and split custody 50/50 BM lives in the school district not DH. You would think they would be understanding nope! Instead they said 50% of the time was not enough and that SS9 needed to be sleeping at BMs more than 50%. Custody arrangement is still the same bc we ultimately determined the court holds more weight then the school. Can anyone relate? Feel free to share...

- What an accomplishment to finally finish my fire pit patio. I did not realize the hard work it would require. I just had a vision and figured it could be done. But after a broken fingernail, a bloody thumb, bites from blood sucking insects, near heat stroke, and muscles that I never knew existed screaming at me even when I just try to sit down on the potty ... I have an area in my yard that will draw people together and lend itself to conversation and sharing life. Isn't that we do as moms? Whether you're a bio mom or a blended mom, adopted mom or want to be mom … dream a dream and then start creating and building. The end result will cost you … but what it creates is priceless! #theblendedfamilymom #stepmom #stepmommy #stepmoms #stepmomma #proudstepmom #bonusmomproblems #stepmomlife #blendedfamily #blendedfamilies #beautifullyblended #stepdaughter #bonusmom #bonusmommy #bonusmoms #stepfamily #stepfamilylife #ourblendedhome
