I love the fact that my son has a great step mom, but there are several things that are really getting to me. 1. After my son's dad and step mom got married, she dyed her hair blonde to look more like my son's mom when they are out in public. She doesn't correct anyone when they say "what a beautiful son you have". 2. She has continually posted photos of my son, over what is considered "normal" (a photo here and there) of my son. I have asked her not to do that anymore, and she has disregarded my request. Everyone thinks she's his mom. Our mutual friends thought he was hers until they saw me with my son, and asked what I was doing with her kid?!. And 3. They won't let me trim my own sons hair. I feel as if my moments of having a son are taken away. If I say anything, they somehow with quiet voices and kind words make me come across like I'm being abrasive, but I think I'm only requesting to have the same authority of my son that I'm giving to them. Ultimately, it's about my son's happiness, so I don't make a fuss or express more than an uncomfortable feeling here and there. Am I wrong in my feelings or requests, or should I just let this go?. We share 50/50 custody (if anyone was curious).
She's now pregnant with her first child, and I'm happy for her. But still overdoing it with photos of my son in everything! Publishing videos, talking about my son's first and last day of school, how big he's getting... Just really weirding me out inside.
