Hi, I'm Maggi, and I'm new here.
So, I have been in my step-boy's life since he was 10 months old, he will be 5 next month and I can honestly say, I have always loved this fella the way I love my other children. So much, in fact, that when my hubby cheated on me, I didn't leave him because I was afraid I would never see Mauri again. (No worries, things are much better now, we just had some growing to do)
The first time I met him I was just his dad's room mate, I was asked to babysit while his dad was at work. His mother knew that his daddy had to work that day, and that a stranger (me) was going to be taking care of her son for 12 hours, but when I offered the day before to meet her for coffee so she could get to know me a little she said no.
Since then she has consistantly refused to meet me; when he told her we were dating, when he told her we were having a baby together, when he told her we were getting married, when he told her we were having two more babies... each time I extended an invitation to lunch and each time she said she had no reason to ever speak to me directly or meet me. I'm not even allowed to be in the car when my hubby picks him up for visits or she wont let us take him.
Does anyone here have any insight into why she may not want to meet me?
Wouldn't you want to know the person who is taking care of your child, taking a part in raising him?
