ok I'm still new to this but I'm 25 I have no kids of my own but our step daughters came one weekend and when we told them to get ready on Sunday so we could take them back to their mothers house our youngest (4 yrs old) threw a fit. We go through it every weekend. She just doesn't want to go. Well a couple weekends ago I got home to her throwing a fit about it again and her dad that she had to go because her mommy missed her she yelled back at him sayin she doesn't want to go and it's not her mom. When she was asked by both her nana and dad where her mom was she said she is here and ran over to me. I'm not gunna lie my heart felt like it was gunna explode I felt like cryin because it made me feel so good. But we ended up sitting down with her and explaining that it was nice of her to say but we didn't think that her mommy would be happy about her calling me that. We told her it would hurt her moms feelings. Well the next weekend we got them back and our oldest tells us that her sister hurt her moms feelings because she once again called me mom. And her sister got in trouble. I don't know if we explained it right to her. I know she's only 4 but she is very smart. We don't know if she did it intentionally or not. But ever since then now both the girls are causing so much trouble at their mothers. Has anyone gone through this or similar?? I'm not tryin by any means to take their mothers spot. The weird thing is I found out from my dad when I was about their age I had called my step dad dad but I did it right in front of my bio dad. I do not remember that but my bio dad told me it broke his heart but that he understood that children will call you as they see you.
