I am a step up or step in parent to two wonderful children whom will be 7 in just a few weeks. Their father and I have been together for 2 years now and for the past year the girl has been calling me mom. Well her new mom and she calls her mother one of two names either by her full name or she calls her "my old mom". Here more recently the little boy has started to call me mom also just not as frequent, but more and more. I truly love them like they are my own even when they make me angry! Their father has done everything he knew to do and really has done much better than his mother, but the children were out of control do to the lack of discipline. I cannot blame him too much because he was trying to assure that he got the children, but now we are trying to turn things around and it has been a tricky road. I could really use some other mothers, step mothers, or anyone who can help, help, and or just listen.
Thank you for reading this whole thing.
