This blog is dedicated to my wife and five boys. Yes, five boys. And yes, we are tired often. But the good times always outweigh the bad.
Our new family came together in 2012 when the Campbell’s and Bennett’s united to create one super-mega family 🙂
Blending a family is one of the most difficult things to do in life. I’ll never be C, D and E’s “dad” and Sarah won’t ever “replace” T’s mom. But we are a family, Parents, brothers, sons. And with R in the mix now, he’s our glue. Sticks all of us together around one tiny human being who loves us all, no matter what. There’s no more “your boys” or “my boy”. They’re our boys. Some days are better than others. The “you’re not my dad”‘s still hurt. But we get through them.
How have you blended a family? What are your challenges? What advice can you share on your experiences?
