Little Dudes

Collin & Aiden (J's son) recently got to spend a whole entire week together. Their personalities are so wildly different & it's neat seeing the two of them interact. Plus, they are both so intent on not sharing. Collin is such a brat & almost always takes things from Aiden when he starts playing with them. Mama has to step in & lay down the law & then they end up sharing. Mostly, they end up playing best together when I'm not even looking...or when they think I'm not looking.

It's really a whole new experience for me when I have Collin & Aiden together. I didn't have the typical transition from one to two kids. I went from having my toddler to having another/someone else's toddler instantly. It's hard figuring out your role as the girlfriend of another kid's Daddy. When J & I were first dating, I was so confused as to what I was/wasn't allowed to do or be for Aiden. And then I sort of just woke up one day & realized that whether I'm allowed to be or not, I am a mother figure in Aiden's life, just as J is a father figure in Collin's life. Neither of us is trying to replace Collin or Aiden's real parents, but we also need to realize the role's we do play are huge.

Combining our two little families is such a massive undertaking & J & I both want to do the right things for our kids, but really....the only, "right," way is to just love them. So, that's what we do. We love.


  1. Amen, sista! My situation is very similar, and you are right on point. ☺

  2. Agree it's not easy blening families but doing whats always best for kids is the way to go we find our girls fight too bit there is age gap and personality diffrences it happens and is normal

  3. How do I contact you? I want to ask you for so advice but DON'T wanna put my life on blast....Ya know??? Please help! LOL <3 jen
