Recently, after a five (5) day visitation with his mom, my stepson and I spent the afternoon together. We went to the video store, and as he was getting out the car he said, "You're not my stepmom, you're my nanny!" I was totally heartbroken, but quickly responded (in an even tone ladies), "I'm you stepmom,not yo're nanny." Later on that day, he continued to call me his Nanny. I spoke to my husband (his dad) about it, and he said I was out of my mind that Sebby has not idea what a nanny means. So he questioned Sebby about it, and the kid looked like he was in fear of getting yelled at and then started stuttering that he didn't know what it meant. He didn't even know where it came from, and may be I heard him wrong, he was calling me another name -- and that I'm crazy. My husband was like, see you're making a big deal out of nothing. So, I have to suck it up. I'm crazy. Turns out his mom, told him, that she's his ONLY mom -- no stepmom; and that I'm the nanny.
Now, the kid returned to us yesterday, and as I was trying to help him with his homework (English grammar), and he doesn't want to do it, it's too much for him he just wants to play, and he didn't want to do the extra credit either, and sure enough, i tell him yes, and he goes off to tell his Dad the opposite; and that he doesn't have to do it. His Dad then tells me for me to do the extra credit for Sebastian, and I said NO! If he wants to cheat for his son, he needs to do it! It went all to hell, about me not being a parent, and my defense is -- Sebby is saying he doesn't have to listen to me, I'm not his parent. My husband actually said to me -- go to bed then if you're not going to help!
