LET's GET SOCIAL

I’m a wife, stepmom x3 and mom x 1 who when I couldn’t find the stepmom support I was looking for, decided to create it myself. I love mac + cheese, distressed denim, sauvignon blanc and all things Dateline.

In this episode of the KICK-ASS Stepmom Podcast I sit down with author, Chloe Caldwell to shoot the shhh about life as a stepmom.

Chloe is a widely published writer, professor, stepmom and wife.

This episode kicks off with Chloe telling the story of the time she chose not to share that her stepdaughter was actually her stepdaughter and not her biological child. As someone who as always referred to her as “step” she felt like she was being untruthful by not sharing that but went with it anyway.

This opened up our conversation and we went on to discuss:

  • How moms treat other moms differently than they treat stepmoms
  • The predictable questions you get asked when you tell someone you’re a stepmom
  • The assumptions people make about being a stepmom
  • Why people are so concerned with the ex

And more…

This is such a good, truthful conversation between two stepmoms who relate to each other in more ways than just being a stepmom.
