I have blogged anonymously since I started blogging in January. I was unsure if I wanted my step kid’s mother to know I blogged, mostly because I wasn’t sugar coating my feelings or the journey that I have been on as a step mom. Well, she found out, and she was so supportive. Her name is Stephanie from Making Time for Me and she has an amazing blog. I will go more into our situation on a different post that we are both working on together.
My name is Jessica Valentino and my husband’s name is Matt, Little Man is James and Little Miss is Jordan. I am 28 years old and I am a Libra. I am the balance of the zodiac signs and I am a Libra to a T. I played soccer for most of my whole life and I love all sports, especially our Detroit Tigers!
The A-to-Z Challenge took me on a journey of my past. The beginning of becoming a step mom and how it effected my life. I have been to hell and back, but I wouldn’t change it for anything. It has made me into the strong woman I am today. I have grown a lot in the past six years and after writing this entire month, I realized that. Everyone has told me I’m an amazing mother, I am a phenomenal wife, the kids are so lucky to have me, but after re reading my posts this month I know in MY heart that those statements are all true. This has been quite the journey of self-reflection and I’m excited to keep opening up more to all of you about ME, Jessica, the blogger behind Not the Average Mama!
