I just got married to a wonderful man last month. I am now a proud step parent to two young children. It's been a difficult task being a step mom but my journey has just begun! I need some advice on these childrens mothers. These two children have different mothers. So I have two step children and two different mothers to deal with. There is really only a small problem with one mother. I have tried and tried again to kind of reach out to Ashley's mother. She has never approached me, tried to meet me, no contact whatsoever. I have tried to text her (with a civil response from her) She just hasn't tried to talk to me. I personally feel like I am the one that needs to try to make an attemp for the two of us to get together or chat. It's important because I'm not the step mom. Am I in my right mind here? I've also been told from other people to act like the is nothing and don't attempt to talk to her at all. Advice anyone?
