Current Mood: angry
I'm beyond pissed off right now. I'm working from home this week because I fell off a bike two weeks ago and bruised my tailbone pretty freakin bad. The story's in my LJ for anyone who wants to laugh at me. :) The ex is working at a restaurant now, so after school has been difficult to arrange the past few weeks. Luckily, with me home right now, it's not a problem. Today, FSS was supposed to walk most of the way home with a friend and FSD was going to get off the bus and meet him down the street and bring him home. At 11 and 8, this has JUST started happening, so it's still a little nervewracking. The ex was working a double and was supposed to take her break at 5:30 or 6 so that she could meet the BF at the Fast Tags place and sign/notarize the final divorce papers. The kids should have been home at 3:30 at the latest. Come 4:05, I start getting panicked. I call FSD's cell phone to find out where they are. Turns out they're at the ex's apartment. She called FSD and told her to come to the apartment instead, and picked FSS up at school. At no point in this entire scenario did she think that she needed to call me so that I wouldn't expect the kids.
So now, I have to pick up FSD at volleyball at 5 (that the ex never told us she had, and keeps "forgetting" to give us the schedule. At least today I can pick one up, hopefully.) and the ex won't be able to meet up to sign the papers. They've been able to sign them since Saturday and every day that goes by makes me question how "desperate" to get them signed so we can get engaged BF really is and how "desperate" to sign them and get it all over with the ex is. I know they don't want to get back together, that's not a concern, but if he's not sure about wanting to move forward with his future with me, that's a HUGE concern.
I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooooo frustrated now.....

4. Stepkids and ages: she's not my step-daughter yet, but she will be in a year or two: 1 girl, age 21 months
5. Why you would like to be a part of </a></a>youngstepmoms? I'm just looking for a community to join that has people like me, I guess for support and advice. I tried to join the baby_momma_drama community too because that's what I've been dealing with but that was denied. I'm new at this and most of my family was older when they became step-parents/the kids were older. I'm just looking for support in what I'm doing, I love him but it's hard sometimes and it's nice knowing I'm not alone.

Since I'm new to the community, just thought I'd introduce myself a little more than the previous post did. :)
I'm Nicole and my two future stepkids are 8 and 9 years old. Kind of tough when they are only a year and a few months apart in age.
I admit that I'm very nervous when it comes to the whole stepparenting thing. At the moment, I don't live with them. However, that may change in the next few months because my fiance and I are looking at moving in together to save money for the wedding. we'd love to buy a house, but that's a different story.
My concern is the transition for me as well as the kids. As it is now, I ask them to do something (nicely) and they look at me like I have 2 heads. I admit, this is partially my fiance's fault for never making them clean up after themselves, but I refuse to become their maid.
Anyway, I'm hoping that through this community I can gather ideas, and find the support I will need to stay sane with all the new changes in my life (and theirs) that will be coming up very soon. :)

It's very, very quiet in here. Does anyone want to promote us in other communities? I would, but I suck a lot and don't have as much time for LJ as it deserves.
And while I'm posting, oh my god, E is not making it to his next birthday if he doesn't knock it the hell off. He has a nasty case of the gimme-gimmes and was a rude little beast all week-end. He snatched money out of my grandma's had when she gave him a gift, my grandfather yelled at him for screwing around with his ice cream, he was mouthy, and he plain old sucked. Who swapped my kid out with a little monster? This was not the same kid we had last week-end.
On the cute side, we were talking about how he's going to wear a tux for the wedding. He nodded at me and said "I'm going to look just like James Bond, Sam. I'll be suave." I died.

A really interesting article that someone on a different site posted:We license plumbers and pilots -- why not parents?

Tim signed over the title to the '94 Buick that we have. It costs either $400 to pay the bill at the shop or $200 to sell it to the owner. Kevin and I originally discussed paying the bill and turning around and selling it. Then, we talked about selling my broken down '93 Lumina. Together we should get at least $1500.
We never discussed what we should do with the money. He just throws it out there that he is going to pay his back child support with it! Ha! I flipped out.
I am sorry, I will be the first one to admit that custodial parents need money. In my opinion, he has him three days, she has him 4, he shouldn't pay. If Tim had Easton that much, I wouldn't expect him to pay. I think in the state of MI once custody is decided, that there are so many days out of the year you have to see your child in order to not pay.
Still, he is $900 in the rearage. I don't really feel that bad for Liz. She makes $12 per hour, lives in subsidized housing and pays $200 for rent, and after her bills she has an extra $1000. She blows her money left and right too. Hense the reason she is so 'poor'...
I said that I am uncomfortable with it. It is like my cars are going to her spending problem. Doesn't everyone think if she got one large sum of money that she would just go blow it and not spend it on Trent??
I told him I would prefer it go to the trailer and that he pays her an extra $100 per month for child support. Maybe than, the money will go to Trent.

5. Why you would like to be a part of youngstepmoms? It would be really nice to have some people around my age that can relate my situation. I love my life and wouldn't change it for the world but sometimes I feel a little out of place because I'm 23 with an 8 yr old. I have known my boyfriend for 2 years and we have been living together for 9 months. It just dawned on me a week or two ago that there's probably communities on livejournal for stepmoms. I've joined a couple but I think this one would be the best fit because my biggest concern is being judged by other parents because I'm so young. When Kai's friends come over and the parents come in and meet us, I'm always afraid that they're judging me because I look even younger than I am.
By the way, my journal and myspace are private. I just went through a terrible divorce so I like to keep my life private. If you have any question whatsoever, I am more than happy to open my journal to a mod or anything like that. If you have questions, let me know! Thanks!
I'll be checking out her journal tonight. What do you guys think?
