Deesha Philyaw, co-founder with her ex-husband Mike of Co-Parenting 101, recently interviewed me, and then conducted a stepmom roundtable discussion with some of the stepfamily bloggers you may know and love, including Heather Hetchler of CafeSmom.com and Bridgett Lemos-Norman of In the Blender. I sound a lot like Minnie Mouse in the interview — what's new? can I have a voice coach, please? — but I think you'll really like hearing these other women talk about their lives married to men with children!

Totally separate bank accounts? Peggy Nolan and Erin Erickson tackle this topic with their guest Kat Nelson-Reid, a stepmom and financial planner, on tonight's Stepmom's Toolbox Radio Show at 8 pm EST.
