About BioStep

Deesha Philyaw from CoParenting 101 describes Step in the Blender as “straight up, no chaser”.

Step In the Blender is about parenting.   I was born to a single mother and raised in a stepfamily and now I’m both a BioMom and a StepMom. Because I’m a BioStep, I see things from both sides of the fence.  When I started this blog in 2010, I was in a step situation—unmarried and living with my partner. Together we had 5 children (2 his, 2 mine, 1 ours), with his children visiting every other weekend. After seven difficult years, that situation thankfully ended in 2013. Today I live with my fiancé, and we have a total of 5 children, three whom live with us. Life is different now, and my posts as of 2014 will reflect that welcomed change.

I’m not a therapist.  I’m just an almost 50 year-old working mom looking for a way to navigate through my own uncharted waters.
