We watched Bad Moms, which was a hit, and then started Bridesmaids, but she fell asleep before things could really get funny (the epic diarrhea scene). We have plans to watch more on Sunday and Monday. Monday is our day together, and she wants me to show her Beaches and Rocky Horror Picture Show.
I’ve been having tough conversations with both kids recently about how life isn’t fair. They are both dealing with difficult shit, which we talk out. I’ll make a comment about how something “just is” and they’ll say “well I don’t like that” and I’ll have to say “yeah, it sucks, life isn’t fair.” I hate that they have to learn these lessons, but I also know they are necessary, and I’m glad I’m here to help them learn and grow. Not everything can be fixed or changed. Sometimes all we can do is find acceptance, and learn to give ourselves grace while we find our best way forward.
We went out for a fancy dinner to celebrate five years as an official family. I love them so very much, and I’m grateful for every second. ♥️
She likes me to sit with her while she does her homework. ♥️
Freya told me I’m her best friend, and oh my heart. ♥️
Being her step-mom has been such an incredible gift.
My girl is all grown up.
Our girl has her license!
How is she so grown up??
From Freya’s bf:
Freya wants us to get matching tattoos.
She drew this today. 🥰
