I have a 10 year old daughter that lives primarily with her father,and I have scheduled visitation.She has lived with them for 5 yrs and is doing well.I went to see my daughter last night and her father and stepmom were both outside as well.The stepmom asked what school my 6 y/o was going to in the fall and I told her and I also said that I wanted to move out here(meaning close to my 10 y/o) and she said"why!' I said b/c even if I dont get an extra minute of visitation with her I want to be where she is. I then started talking to my 10 y/o and she told me she were going to a gymnastics camp this week and I said "would you like me to bring your sister?" She said yes and the stepmpm chimed in'why drive all the way out here,they wont be in the same class"...lastly, talking about my 10 y/o her stepmom said"I dont want to be a grandma for yrs...." I feel like she is pushing out of my daughters life whenever she can..Shes 43,no kidsAnswer Question

I'd say find a way to work with her... express your concerns when you have them!!! You daughter is lucky to have two moms!!
My mom and step mom were at odds for years (we lived with my dad), and only years later, when my mom became a FT care giving step mom did she understand!!

I want to know why the hell you don't have custody of your child. You complain about not getting enough visitation, but why the hell have you not had custody for the last FIVE YEARS? Have you been fighting for your daughter at all?
(sorry this is rude. It's a touchy subject for me)
Are you seriously suggesting that a father shouldn't have custody of a child? Maybe he was better off when the child was 5 and the mother can't afford an attorney? You have no idea and certainly don't have any right to attack her like that. Some women make me sick when they bash a woman for not having custody of her child but, its ok for a father not to have custody. Women are no better than men when it comes to raising children.
