Mother's day. :(

I waited all day today, hoping that my husband and SS (just turned 5) would at least say "Happy mother's day!" Nothing...nothing at all. Not a card. Not a thank you. Nothing! I've been a stepmom for over a year now.

I even cooked three meals (twice for my husband and once for both of them) today!

Is this how it is like to be a stepmom? I cried in the bathroom.

PS: My husband told me on Friday (before SS was going to spend the weekend with BM) that he is taking SS to buy a card and flowers for BM. I went with them to pick flowers.

Yes, I guess that's what stepmother is. Not a mother.

I wish there is a step parent's day.

I'm sorry. I do understand that you are sad but I also understand the side of "you're not a mom". I think you should have at least got some flowers.

I am so sorry that you had a bad day. Being a step mom is a roller coaster ride of emotions. I will be praying for you this week.

Well, I should make this clear. I guss I am upset at my husband not at my SS. He is too small to understand or do anything about it on his own.

And my SS told me tonight after I gave him a bath that he loves both of his moms.

I said last night if I saw any posts like this I'd be snarky.. I just lost my first baby a week and a half ago, my mothers day has been one of the hardest days of my life.. so keep in mind, it could always be worse.
That being said -
Im sorry you didnt get the acknowledgement you expected. Did you tell your DH you hoped to be recognized today? five year olds only know that youre not their mom.. If you relaxed a little, im willing to bet there was a lot of appreciation for the things you doday, just as there are every day. A day isnt necessary for that.. and sorry to say but if youre not a mom, its not "your day" today

I believe there is I'm just not sure when.  and I'm sorry  no a sm unless they have kids  their isn't a mother they're dad's wife. a marriage license does not make you a parent.
