You better not have the nerve to refer to me as birth mom or BM, signifying that I am one aspect of mom and you are another, thus needing the distinction. I am their mom. If you need a classification, feel free to use RM - real mom - in regards to me.
*My children's stepmom is a kind and respectful woman, with whom I would probably never have to have this conversation with. It's my CM pet peeve. And I really don't care about the justification of custodial stepmoms- you're doing a great job, but mom is mom and you are a stepmom unless you have legally adopted.
