I was genuinely shocked to learn that stepmom is a fluid role.
Some days, my family needs me to step up and do all the things. Other times, it’s best for my family when I step back and follow Kevin’s lead.
Usually, Krista craves my attention and friendship, but some days, she just wants her Daddy.
One day, I’m gung-ho and ready to tackle stepmomming like a boss, and the next, I’m ready for some quiet, introverted time alone.
I was once afraid of the fluidity, my Type A brain fearful something was wrong. But I’ve learned to embrace it and to approach my role with flexibility and understanding.
If you’ve been afraid to go with the flow of this fluid role, consider this your official permission to let it go ❤️
