Hi everyone! I know that all our situations are unique, challenging and often times never praised for or about. However, one of the toughest things for me (step mom of 2 boys that we've had with us since they were 2 and 3 for about 8 years) is that they always go for the day with their bio-mom on mother's day and I always feel frustrated or just plain "blue". I have 2 gorgous baby girls of my own, but love the boys as if they were my own and it just never fails that I can't fully enjoy the day. Feeling blue as this sunday approaches and trying to make the best I can out of the sitatuion that always has me down. We have full residential custody and sometime we get to squeeze in a dinner on Sat. night if it's our weekend. In this case, it's her weekend and I wont' see them all weekend long. How do I include them or handle this to let them know that I think of them just as much and make it special for us?
