Step-parents are fantastic

I am not one. However I am married to one, and I just wanted to say that SPs can make a huge contribution to children's upbringing. Years ago as a single parent I was many classic things like failing to draw clear boundaries, and after taking a deep breath and trusting the woman who would later become my wife (who had a much more objective view of the situation, let's face it), things got far better.

I'm not going to drone on about it but we've just been on holiday and I was reflecting on it, and on the fact that good SPs rarely get the appreciation they deserve (or indeed any). So if you are one, give yourself a pat on the back. Or something.

Hey, thanks prism

For what it's worth, I've just have a lovely weekend with my OH and his amazing daughter, sometimes, just sometimes, this stepmum thing is actually pretty cool ...
