But sometimes....I just want to slap these kids on this show! About the time one of my teens called the cops or children services on my husband, I can't imagine what I'd do but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be pretty.
That said, I never remarried, simply because when my kids were small, it seemed like a really poor idea. Being a step parent has to be the single most difficult job in the entire world. You have all the responsibility and basically no power. I'd never want to go there.
