We celebrated here for my step-brother’s graduation today!
Dan was only 6 years old when his dad, who had full custody, married my mom twelve years ago. It’s been interesting, fun, and rewarding to see my mom get a second chance at parenting. Don’t get me wrong. She did well the first time around, but who wouldn’t want a second chance at tweaking their parenting skills? Especially if you don’t have to birth them!
For the record, my Mom married one of the most incredible men I’ve ever met. I’ve NEVER seen him in a bad mood. Never. Early on, I thought he had to be faking it, but he wasn’t. He’s the real deal. Steve is a happy person with a quick smile and a huge heart. And knowing Dan, he is going to grow up to be just like him.
