I have a great relationship with my kids. Healthy parent child, open relationship. My sons wedding reception last night, his step mom was introducing herself as the grooms mom. I've read several posts from step moms thinking they deserve equal respect as the mom but to me this was so disrespectful and out of place.

Depends on the quality of the relationship between your son and his step mother. Perhaps he has a good enough relationship with her that he didn't feel uncomfortable about it.

I guarantee that its not the first time she's introduced herself as 'mom'. And, to be honest, if yours was a joint custody situation, he may have a very close relationship with her. It IS possible, you know. I absolutely ADORE my stepdad, which is no disrespect to my biological father, as they both fill different spots in my life.
