The Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan King Edmonds is sharing her journey this season as a new wife and step-mom. The reality star has been very open about the struggles of being a step-mom and a recent comment she had made put her in hot waters with the other women.
Meghan is now clearing up what she meant when she stated that she wishes she were her step-kids’ mom in her Bravo blog. Meghan writes:
I want to clarify something I said that might have been lost in translation: when I said I wish I was my step kids’ mom I didn’t mean I wish their moms didn’t exist. I think having a relationship with your mother is one of the most beautiful gifts a child can have and I would NEVER want to replace my step kids’ moms or step on their toes. Regardless of my relationship or my feelings toward the mother, this is about the kids. And it would be awful to see my step kids not have their mother involved in their lives. I was simply trying to stress how much I love my step kids; it’s hard to share the time we have with them, and it’s hard not to be able to make decisions for them like healthcare or school since I feel so strongly involved in their lives. Having said that, both moms to my step kids are amazing mothers and even though we might disagree I would never in a million years try to take away their relationship with their mom. (I even refer to the kids’ moms as “mom” or “mommy”… “I’m going to take you to Mommy’s house after practice.” “What would Mom say about this new apartment?”) And maybe most of all, I would never speak negatively about their moms to the kids because it’s not about me or mom, it’s about the kids and that hurts them because mom is perfect in their eyes and I intend to keep it that way.
There you have it. Thoughts on what Meghan had to say??
