My blended family in the New York Times: He Was Ready to Be a Stepdad. Was I Ready to Let Him?

by singlemomseeking on February 22, 2015


Today at The Motherlode in the New York Times, I write about the first time I let my now-husband “solo” with my daughter: he forgot to feed her, and I “forgot” not to yell at him in front of her. I had to learn to let them become a family.

Thanks for reading… He Was Ready to Be a Stepdad. Was I Ready to Let Him?

Great article! I think it can be really helpful for people who are in the same situation.

Hello, stranger. Xoxo.

I was so happy to click on your link and find this still here.

Your words still resonate so deeply…there really is no control, is there? I feel like that is absolutely the most difficult aspect of parenting; the inability to control any of it.

And a very belated congrats on your newest addition…all of them.

He wasn’t ready to be Facebook public about his marriage?? That is some serious weirdness. I hope you guys have worked through it and that he acknowledges you in all spheres of his life.

Yeah I could kind of understand not wanting to be public about a casual relationship (you want to be sure it’s going somewhere before you “go public”) but doing that for a marriage? That’s pretty weird to say the least.
