When my husband and I first started dating in 2006, his 2 children were little kids that weren’t biologically mine. It was a difficult transition then and still is now. As the years have gone by, many fond memories have been and are still being built as I watch the children grow and change.
Since the beginning I have been thrilled to have a girl to buy girly things for. In some ways she reminds me of myself growing up. She loves to fish, ride her bike, swim, dance and play outside. She is a very smart and outgoing girl.
In 2007 I became pregnant with a little boy. Now there were three boys in the household. My stepdaughter was quite small,but she and the new little man were now attached at the hip. Now that she is almost a teenager and my son is 6, things are a little different. She is still a very important part of shaping his life.
My stepdaughter is now a teenager who can be a typical, catty, whiny and moody young girl. Even though she can be difficult at times I try to love her as much as she will allow.With all the Surprises it is a pleasure to see her turn into a young lady.
