I have been with my boyfriend now for 7 months and have known him for a few years. I havent been introduced to his twin girls untill a couple weeks before we made things more official. My problem is that before me there was no other female, so the girls were used to climbing into bed with dad in the middle of the night and hes fine with that except the are getting bigger now and we are now living together. Now in the middle of the night the girls will wake up and climb into our bed but the room is limited with 4 of us on a queen size. I have tried to talk to my boyfriend about trying to keep them sleeping in their own new beds but he doesnt seem to inforce it. I tried to inforce it myself the other night and ended up sleeping on the couch after these 4 year old girls were elbowing my back and literally kicking me off the bed. I feel underminded and unappreciated for being a stay at home step mom and running a household with little sleep and no respect. I dont know what to think of these girls behavior towards me. Do they dis-like me or this just their habbit. How do I break it. Im only 23 turning 24 and Ive raised 3 kids before when I was young but this was never a problem! These girls are great but we are having our differences. Any advise.....
P.S. Thanks to all you mothers!
