The May 2015 issue of StepMom Magazine is HERE!
The tips and advice in this month’s issue are designed to
help make your job a little easier.
While we don’t specifically address Mother’s Day in any of the articles, remember that—regardless of your maternal status and any recognition you may or may not receive on May 10—what you do is important.
Stepfamily experts agree that a stepmom’s job is the hardest job position within any family!
And, if stepmoms got paid what they’re worth? We’d all be millionaires.
Here’s what you’ll find inside when you subscribe:
