I need advice from other moms. My 5 year old son and I moved in with my fiancé (my son's father) and his children from his first marriage (ages 12 and 18) one year ago. My fiancé and I have been together for 8 years, so the kids have known me for a long time and I've been an integral part of their lives. However, living together has been a major challenge for all. I feel that my stepkids intensely dislike their younger, half-brother and wish that he and I would just disappear. The fiancé and I purchased a home together in January, in effort to give everyone their own space and reduce the mine vs. theirs issues. We're not exactly the Brady Bunch. I feel like I'm at my wits end. I love all three children, but sometimes I feel like collecting my biological child and heading for the hills.
