Hi I have two stepkids 12 and 9 and my husband and I just welcomed our first daughter 4 months ago. My question is this: How do you deal with situations that are "none of your business because you're just a step parent" but when my husband and his ex make decisions about the kids it affects my life. IE, they now decided kids will stay at our house Sunday nights and take the bus from our house to school on Monday. I was to have no say or input, not my business but......I'm the only one home on Monday mornings to get them on the bus. I'm the one who cooks and cleans and does their laundry when they'r ehere, drives them to whatever they need to get to, takes them to birthday parties, etc as my husband is usually working during the day. HOW DO I DEAL WITH THIS?????It isn't really my buisiness BUT it directly affects me cuz I'm doing the work!!! HELP!!!!
