I am a remarried mom in a blended family with six children. Three from my previous relationship, two from my husband’s previous relationship, and one child from my current marriage. Our children range in age from 19 years to 11 months. We also have a newborn grandson.
I was a single mom for a relatively short period of time. My relationship with my husband began when I was eighteen months into my single mom journey. We have been together for just over three years and have been friends for four and a half years. We are newlyweds, having married this past Fall.
I returned to college and earned a Master in Teaching degree while solo parenting my three children. That in itself could fill a novel, but it is not the focus of my blog. I am finding life in a blended family to be much trickier than I expected. With the number of blended families in the U.S. it is definitely a relevant topic and one close to my heart.
My life as a mom and wife has had some unexpected, dramatic events. Some wonderful, some traumatic. I will share them over time.
