I am a stepmother to an amazing little 2 year old girl :-) , lets start by saying being a stepparent is definitely very hard, emotionally. Sometimes or a lot of the times you can really feel like you are not loved the same / that you always have to go the extra mile to ensure that they are OK with you. I have so much to discuss, but lets start with ... I was wondering If anyone knows if its normal for a toddler to wake up quite grumpy most of the time? is this normal or could something be bothering ? also, she used to be happy/fine with me picking her un in the mornings/middle of the night, lately/past few months this has changed and she doesn't really want or like me to pick her up, is she going through a phase , am I being too sensitive ? these things really get to a stepparent as we already go the extra mile to ensure happiness and comfort.
