I am Kelsee aka The Mom(ster). Once upon a time, I was the bad guy of Kassandra’s story. Now we have a better understanding of one another, and we’ve also grown up a lot since then.
I’m a stay-at-home mom. I have 3 beautiful children (that doctors told me I would never have) and a wonderful husband. I run a farm, help run a non-profit animal rescue, and I also run my own Scentsy business. Don’t let me fool you though, I do NOT have it all together. Most days, I am the hot mess mom!
Kassandra and I met over 10 years ago when she started dating my son’s father. That was not an easy part of my life. So, when Kassandra arrived that didn’t help things.
I’ll Explain - I was in my early 20’s, trying to navigate what life meant as a mother, a single mother in a new relationship, and here was this, this… person, and this boundary… boundary of mother roles…that had not been explored before. It’s safe to say, emotions ran high.
We had a high conflict relationship for years. But there were moments of peace and at times we were friends. It took us a while to realize why things kept going south (spoiler it was my son’s dad). I was able to support Kassandra in her decision to get a divorce. And I see how much she loves my son so I make sure they see each other as much as possible, her and his siblings.
We don’t have it all figured out. But maybe if we talk about how things were and how we wish we’d done better someone else won’t have it as rough.
