No gifts, cards for any occasion due to SK

DH says we can't celebrate Mother's Day because my stepkids have a bad relationship with their mother. They are 17 and 19.
Our biological kids are 10 and 13. If it wasn't for school, my kids would have no idea about Mother's Day because DH -- again, doesn't recognize it. It's the same on my birthday. We can't celebrate it because the cake would say 'mom" and so would a card.
Therefore, I've never receive gifts and cards for anything.

Anyone else? Normal or not?

That's not normal. I'd tell him to gtfo. They make cakes and cards for step mom's to. It's just an excuse to not do anything.

Unless they have some sort of serious issue with the word "mom" I think it's ridiculous. And I mean like PTSD because their mom severely abused them. And even then they make stepmom Mother's Day cards and such. As far as your birthday your cake could say your first name lol. So that is just really ridiculous. I have never had a cake that said mom. I have had cards signed by my kids that say mom but really the stepkids don't need to read those.....
