A what? A bonusmamma. Plastic-mom, fake-mom, play-mom, or the most popular one, step-mom. Plus “adventure” (which is the fun part). A lot has been already said about step-moms; everyone knows one, real or not (refer to the Grimm’s brothers if you insist). Our reputation precedes us, and often includes words like evil, wicked, selfish, bitch, second-woman… to say the least.
But if after having read the books, and are still not scared by us wicked step-mothers, then keep reading and you will get to the “adventure” part. For me being a step-mom is something that one day happened to me, and that is part of my own big adventure. And the entries here are just a tiny part of it (even if sometimes they feel like a gigantic part of an ordinary daily life).

Contrary to what popular culture dictates, and to what the Grimms’ brothers have been telling us generation after generation, having a sassy step-mom is not that bad. Of course there … Continue reading →
What does a sassy bonusmamma do on payday? Go shopping for kid’s clothes. Let’s face it. If all the women in my step-kids’ lives didn’t go shopping for them, they … Continue reading →
