I'm gonna drop a little #truthbomb
on ya... of course this is just my opinion but you can take what you like and leave the rest.
tomorrow is mother's day. i'm a step mom. does this make me less of a mother - yes, yes it does. does that s**k sometimes...yup. does that mean i don't show up to the best of my ability for my step children - no.
i was making my list of mother's day gifts and asking the kids what they want to get for their mom's because it feels like the right thing to do to me and it just came to me to share - if you are a step mom - find a way to celebrate that with your step kids that doesn't take away from their mom's.
i know it's hard to not get your feelings hurt sometimes when you pour into your step kids and don't feel like you are acknowledged enough but you know what - i'm pretty sure being a mom is a pretty thankless job all the time and moms deserve to have a day!
stepmom - it doesn't mean the work you put in to give to your step kids doesn't count to not have mothers day be all about you!
embrace the specialness of your relationship with your step kids instead of comparing your relationship to theirs with their moms.
i say all the time part time kids is a pretty cool set up: only do school pick up every other week, can be selfish every other week, half the money and still all the love!
ps. next sunday is #nationalstepmomday
maybe use that one to celebrate!
