I am married to a great guy... he has a 9 year old daughter from a previous relationship and we have a 3 year old twins ( boy and girl) ... My "stepdaughter" is with ME 6 days a week ( hubby works long hours ) She goes to her "moms" house on Wednesday after school ( sometimes she stays all night but sometimes she wants to come home) .. and every once in awhile her mom will want her for something on the weekend, but she even calls me mom ( by her choice and I wasnt going to tell her not to ) ...
I went into this relationship with my husband expecting to have a friendly relationship with her mother, and just simply be a stepmom ....
But I am the one who gets her up in the morning, gets her ready for school ( her room and her stuff if here, she justt takes a bag to her "moms"), I make all her meals, I take her to her sports practices, I am her cheerleader, I read her a story at bedtime...
I think I am a big role in her life !!
But of course her mother does not....... My little girl has to have a small surgery next week and her "mom" told me and my husband several times that ONLY her and him are aloud to go... whenever she gets upset with me she says things like " i could be out of her life with the sign of a paper" or " that I am only a mom to 2 kids, not 3" ...
SD wants me at the hospital, she told me this... my husband and I are BOTH going... but it makes me soo mad that she would say that I have no right of going there.. and it is going to make me soo mad if she actually tries and make a scene once we get there ( as she has done before)

Next question overall
Have you ever met a woman who only talks about her kids?
