This is technically a question about Father's Day but the posts about Mother's Day got me thinking. BM is now married. She sees the kids for visitation 1 day a month. Her husband doesn't do a whole lot with the kids when she does see them, Especially now with his schedule change. He comes home for dinner, they eat, put in a movie or watch TV, kids are either playing in another room with little sister or watching TV also. In the morning he leaves for work and then the kids come home. Would it be right to buy a gift for him for Father's Day? I kind of see it as no because he is not a father figure to them. They like him well enough but they have told me multiple times they don't believe BM and him will stay married because they are always fighting when they're home together.
My SKs acknowledge me for Mother's Day each year, they spend either the whole day with me or they may see BM for a few hours, depending on her mood. My DH takes them out along with the other children to go shopping for me each year, I take the SKs out separately to shop for BM. Should I also start having them pick up something for their step father? Everything in me screams no but maybe I am being biased. What do you all think? Anyone in this position? What do you do?
