Most of the time my SS calls me mom which is very nice, since I've been in his life since he was very young! But I beleive he hears my DH say the "her" " she" thing, maybe my SS repeats what he hears. Not positive who actually started it but, I am offended.
Examples: remember I am always present.
" Give the plate to her" says DH to SS.
" It's her turn " says SS to DH, when were playing a game.
" she helped me do my homework" says SS to DH.....
I think you get the idea.
I HAVE A NAME!!!!!!!!!!!
Call me " Sally" or " MOM" or "MUM" .....I am not the neighbor or an aquatance! It's hard enough being a STEPMOM and feeling even less important being refered to as "her" or " she".
When we are together with SS, he always refers to DH as dad ! And I always refer to my DH by his name or dad when we have SS.
Like..." Pass the potatoes to Dad, please" ....not " pass the potatoes to HIM"!
MY husband does this sometimes when we don't have SS. But, its hard to be and feel respected when your refered as " her"!
What do you think?
