She has got quite the attitude- she just threatened to replace me because I asked her to eat her dinner and quit playing... sigh...
it hurts all the more because their BF has a relatively new girlfriend living with him and she is having my kids call her mommy already (they've been together less than 6 months) They have been told they have two mommies now, and two daddies... they seem to understand the concept of step-parents but they don't use the term (for daddys they say daddy B______ and daddy S______)
So how do you handle this--- She goes to school so I have her only in the evenings and she is at BFs house every other weekend. I feel like my lil girl is slipping away.

I think your ex is treading in dangerous water by having your DD call his girlfriend mommy this early in the relationship. This can be very confusing and especially if their relationship does not work out then what. This is not appropriate andÂ you need to do is to talk to your ex. Mommy is a special word and should not be used so easily. I would tell your DD the next time they tell her to call her Mommy to inform her that she already has a Mommy. As you can see this situation has already taught her that if she does not like what you do that she can get a new mommy. Now I think everyone knows that if she had to choose one mommy who that would be but that does not mean she will not use this to manipulate you. Definitely talk with your ex and his girlfriend to set rules. Once she realizes that the rules are the same at both households she will most likely stop.
