Life as a stepmom may be one of the toughest jobs there is. And it’s not something you can really prepare for, either. Emotions can run crazy, personalities can be prickly, and power struggles ensue. Successful stepmoms understand they’re not replacing a biomom; sometimes it’s okay to take a step back and be silent — trust and love are grown on their own timetable. This collection of memes, that only stepmoms can understand, celebrates your courage, heart, and choice to love someone else’s children even when you don’t have to.

On amazing days, I produce technical writing that helps people get things done.
