I confess that sometimes I wish that FI's daugther would go live with her Mom. I know that makes me sound evil and hateful but its only because she won't warm up to me no matter how hard I try (partly because she is a teenager and its the age) and because she is the only thing that FI and I ever fight about!

 

She can't seem to remember to brush her teeth, hair, take a shower, etc. She argues and talks back, which is normal for kids, she doesn't do things with us as a family unless we make her, she only cares about herself. (again, probably normal for a teen).

 

I always get to be the bad guy telling her to do these things and FI is so passive and I feel like he doesn't care about this stuff. Although he tells me that he agrees with me and is behind me, I don't feel like he is because he doesn't step up and take action with her.

 

I truly feel like a horrible person for feeling this way, and I would never tell FI that, but when she was gone all summer to her mom's it was so great to not be arguing everyday with her and then with FI about the stuff she wouldn't do.

 

Ok, someone kick me please.

*kick* just kidding Steph! lol

 

It must be really tough in your situation. I think being a teenager has A LOT to do with it. I'm sure she'll eventually get over it, most of them do. In the meantime, why don't you ask your FI to do the disciplining. If he's supporting you and backing you up, then he should be able to dish it out as well. Just a thought. Tell him how you feel, maybe he'll understand after that!

steph, you have to talk to FI about this. it is not fair to you to have to be the "bad guy" when you are already dealing with the hurdle of being the "evil stepmonster" ... no teenage girl is going to like/respect/obey her mother's "replacement." it's just not in a teenage girl's DNA. if you always have to be bad guy it will be ages before she warms up to you. if HE's the bad guy all the time, she'll start coming to you to complain about him, lol. hate to be like, "his kid, his job" but that's how i feel. do your boys show him respect?

I have talked to FI about this. a lot. He says he will take care if it so I don't have to but then he doesn't. For example, minor example here, I got home from the gym Tuesday night and she was in her PJ's and hadn't taken a shower. She was gross, playing outside ect. I asked him, "did you have Sam take a shower?" He says, no I forgot. So why am I the only adult it seems?

 

He has no problem diciplining my boys, and they are young enough, they listen to him and respect him.

 

I just hate that he says he backs me up and he'll do it so I don't have to but then he doesn't. I still have to ask him to do it, when I might as well do it myself. So if I'm not nagging her, I'm nagging him to nag her! lol.

Which makes me think of another confession.

Sometimes I resent the fact that my best friend moved and is busy building a life in another state, my other bm's aren't really terribly close to me anymore(used to be but now one has a baby and the other is preoccupied with school), and my roommates don't wanna hang out anymore since the living situation has changed(my FI hates living with them, it makes things awkward and one of them is busy planning her own wedding).

It's not like I expect everyone to drop everything and be completely psyched about my wedding. But I feel like I don't have the friend there to pour over bridal magazines and squeal about the proposal with.
Some days I just think back to when I had a bunch of friends, sure they weren't the best for me but at least I always had someone to talk to.

This is more of a vent than a confession. Sorry.

You should so read it, it's so funny. And it really makes you feel like someone else is going through the same thing!

I know what you mean about things changing. I moved to Canada from NC in Janurary and I soo wish I had my close friends around for wedding planning. I won't even see my WP in their outfits until THE WEDDING!! This forum is seriously a life saver!

I hear you girls too.. all my girls are scattered across north america. I bought all their dresses on jcrew (after getting their sizes via email) and then shipped them to them all. We were all together for my bach party in vegas, but not again until the wedding..

it was the same with me - 1 of my BMs lives in NYC, My MOH was moving all over California doing her rotations for her Physician Assistant Program and the other went to Iraq (still there) and couldn't make it to the wedding.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
