I'm a 23 year old stepmom of 2 wonderful kids I love them very much and they have been living with us for the past two years. Recently there's been tension between my little boy and I that has me feeling down and like I'm not doing a good job. It's been a stressful couple of weeks and it hasn't helped that their biological mother doesn't regularly visit or contact them. In the past year they have been with me 24/7. Since my husband works late nights he doesn't get to spend much time with them. We were discussing the issues I've been having with the kids and I felt very guilty for admitting to wanting a break from my stepkids but I've been so overwhelmed and not feeling like myself lately. Was it wrong of me to be honest with him? I don't want him to think I'm getting fed up with the kids I just feel like a break would be good for all of us.
