I agree, if you've been in her life all along then even her dad should be telling her to cut it out. Did you two have some sort of falling out to precipitate this issue?

In that case, you need to address it with her! There's no excuse for that type of behaviour without explanation!

And when did you become step mom? If it was recently, you're more of "The woman that my father married"...regardless of whether you like it or not.

TBH, my father's 3rd wife was pissed because I would not introduce her as my 'step mother'...I'd introduce her as my father's wife. She wasn't a 'mother' to me in any way.

If you've been with her dad since she was young, and this is new behaviour, by all means address it. However, if you didn't marry her father until after she reached adulthood...you may have to live with it. Yes, it's rude to not acknowledge you, but unless your husband is going to say something to her about it, you'll only come off as petty and bitchy if you say anything.

Not to mention, but she's most likely coming to visit her father, and wants that time with him.
