I've decided it's time to say goodbye. I'm going to stop writing "Stepbomb" because I need to give my full focus to fixing the situation between my husband's ex-wife and me.
I often debate what my role in my stepdaughters' lives should be. And that is why I write this post. I'm looking for and value your insight and welcome your opinions -- even the ones that are especially hard to hear.
Another difficult thing about divorce is that, more often than not, the ex-spouses don't have a similar approach to parenting. My husband's oldest daughter has started asking about getting her own e-mail address, and (not surprisingly) mom and dad aren't in agreement about what to tell her.
Last night, I received an e-mail from the ex. Under no uncertain terms were my husband and I to keep any original homework that the girls brought home from school. HUH?!
