I have been a stepmom for 15 yrs. and still am but my sk's are grown up and continue to live with their mom.
I met them ages (dd4 & ds2) the mom wanted to be with someone else so (they were separated at the time we met) she remarried had a baby. My dh & I got married and had 2 kids.
Well I thought I was a loving and good stepmom and went with the years hoping some how my sk's were close well it did not seem like it worked out that way bc now its like they only come over when their dad is home (he works weird hours) so when he's off on the weekends the sometimes are here.
Well today my sd21 calls and asks her dad if he will be home bc she wanted to get together for the Super Bowl he said no I am working but you can still come over if you'd like she says no that's defeating the purpose on coming over.
That kind of hurt my feelings bc when they were little I used to think why am I babysitting these kids while my dh was at work and this was every weekend and wondered their dad should be here with them not me watching them but I did not mind it at the time, but did wonder and blew it off.
I asked him today why aren't they coming and he said cause I have to work I'm like ugh! I told him I was a dumbbutt when I used to babysit them bc I didn't have to watch them I did it for him to be close to them and look now I'm not that important to them :(
Just feeling down for now I'll be OK.
Thanks Ladies for listening...
