To all you mom's out there who have never had a child born from someone else want to call you mommy because you live with them, cook their dinners, wash their clothes, nurture and love them. How dare you say it is not our place as step moms to worry about their behavior. We are moms too. When we started seeing their dads we had no clue how capable we were of loveing them as our own and no clue how difficult it would be to raise them. Most parents have the privlidege of getting their kids as infants, they don't suddenly have a 3 year old scribbling on their walls and climbing in their bed at night covered in pee. You just don't know what it's like for step parents so don't tell us where our place is or isn't. There I had my rant and I feel better(:
Moms were trying to tell a step mom that it wasn't her place to even care how her SS behaves when all she needed was a little advise.
