There are two sides to every story - calling all moms with ex's and step moms
Sometimes, I come on here and I search from posts by moms bitching about step mom, just to see it from a different light.
Often times, I take mom's side, over my husband, because he has some unrealistic ideas . Other times, I take my husbands side, because I feel mom has unreasonable requests. In the end, I look out for my son, then my step daughter, my self, and then my husband - in that order.
But I am not mom to my stepdaughter and I am not dad to my step daughter. I am step mom. To me this means that my opinion only matters if one of her parents wants it to matter or if the situation has the potential to negatively impact my son.
Mom's - what is the one thing that irritates you the most about your child's step mom ? What gets under your skin about your child's father as a parent, not as your ex?
I honestly want to see it from both sides. I usually do, but constructive advice should be welcomed in every situation
step moms - what is one thing that you or your husband has learned to do in order to help the situation? One thing you have learned not to do?
I've only been a step mom for 2 years, and I have learned that mom didn't ask for my help, and it's my husbands job to appreciate me, not moms.
