In this episode of the Nacho Kids Podcast, Lori, co-founder of Nacho Kids, interviews Ali Wilks from Stepcoupling! Ali has been blending for 13 years and has three stepkids, ages 18, 16, and 11, and two “ours” kids, ages 11 and 9. Her stepkids’ mom passed away seven years ago adding some unique challenges to the blend. Ali, like many stepmoms, has experienced struggles in her blend. Her biggest struggle was with her stepdaughter. Thankfully, she and her stepdaughter went to therapy together and things have improved. 


In this episode, we discuss:

  • Bringing an “ours” kid into the blend

  • Letting go of the “One big happy family” dreams

  • Nachoing isn’t easy

  • Not claiming the stepkids as your own

  • Focusing on your marriage
