I know its an awful thing to say but having had dsc's for over a week I am really ready for them to go home.

They have really pushed boundaries this week and for the first time ever dp has actually disciplined them so we have had the backlash to deal with too. Although he still let's them get away with talking to me like crap...he is starting to back me up when I tell them off for it though.

Am soooo glad i have 2 weeks before they are here again.

Not aided by being 29 weeks pg and having an awful tummy bug for last 3 days

brdgrl i'm completely aware of my own posts. i was pointing out that sometimes it is acceptable to split a family up for example if my children's step parent wanted to hit them. as opposed to the argument thrown at me that leaving was morally unacceptable.

i dont assume that OP was actually planning on hitting her stepchildren- i assume from her posts that she would like to.

I didn't say that. I said -
You see walking away from your family as an option. You think we should do the same.

the same = see walking away as an option.

You were not posting about being a parent who leaves a partner who "had thoughts" about smacking his/her children.

You were directing your comments at the stepmums who have chosen to be in a relationship with a man with children.

Ha! I've wanted to lash out at most of my family members at some point, but I never have, because I have self control (as do most people). I am not about to walk out on them because they irritate me sometimes.

The op was venting, give her a break.

Suck your posts about SMs having choice to leave we're most certainly not restricted to DV households (adult or child). You're heavily backtracking there

I am however tired and ready for them to go home

I know exactly how you feel OP. When DSD went back to her mum's yesterday you will probably understand how great that feeling was, knowing I can have a break and get my house tidy!

I know how you feel, sometimes I think the dad expects you to be their mum and to step in to her shoes but though you try, its a lot more effort to look after his children than your own, in part because they do not respect you as much and you have to maintain a boundry in regard to the disciplin and there is not that natural bond that you have with your own where you would go to the end of the world and back. Just hold on to the fact that you will have your own bundle of joy soon and he will have to step up and look after his children more when yours arrives. They may be slightly jealous and start trying to impress you as your attention will be elsewhere and start to be better behaved for you. If you are feeling that angry though perhaps it is the hormones? I hope that will subside does sound like the kids need some councelling.
