Where I will share my truths as a Mother & Stepmother.
My truths for today.
- I could not sleep last (Thursday) night…I stayed up till 2:30 a.m. watching Days of Our Lives. I am really worried about Sadie starting school, so much when I finally did fall asleep that’s what I dreamed about! Friday we will be meeting Sadie’s teacher. I hope Sadie likes her, and I hope she is a good fit for Sadie.
- Thinking back on Reyrey’s first day of Kindergarten, I did not have all this anxiety-it was a fun milestone for him! We were very excited and happy-I don’t remember this much anxiety on my end. Which really triggered my stepmom guilty that maybe at that time I did not love him as much as I thought. I found this video on StepMom Magazine which really helped me accept that love for another’s child is not automatic, but grows. Don’t get me wrong here-because I do very much love them, care for them, and want the best for them, but the love is not acquired the same as with my own children.
- We met all the kids teachers on Friday evening and I have to say I think this will be a great year! Sadie’s teacher is new to teaching this year, she seems very understanding of what I am going through as her son is starting kindergarten too! I love her classroom set up and Dr. Seuss decor. Julie’s teacher was so down to earth! I just loved how upfront she was about what she expects and she told Julie when they work hard she will reward them. Reyrey’s teacher was very attentive to his needs and explained how things will work very differently in 6th compared to 5th-he is very excited this year as he is now old enough to play tackle football.
- Have you meet your child’s(ren’s) teacher? When it comes to school and rules-do you have any rules for your children in addition to the schools?
Here is the video I was talking about! It’s a great reminder for StepMoms about how to deal with these issues.
These are my truths of the week, I hope you share yours!
It’s way past Thursday but I wanted to still share these thoughts with you all.
Have a great weekend!
