My daughter is only 3 years old. Her dad and I separated in 2012. He moved on rather quickly and my daughter was 2 at the time. He met a nice lady but my daughter is so impressionable she will say whatever you want. Ava's dad and I both agreed no one else would ever be called mom/dad. But that changed because he feels its Ava's choice, I do agree with that. At the same time, I'm very much alive, I'm not absent, I'm very much apart of Ava's life, so I feel her step-mom should be called by her first name. I'll never let Ava call another man dad, because I know how he'd act about it. Sometimes I just feel she over does it with my daughter at times. There is nothing wrong with her loving Ava as her own, but she needs to know where the boundaries are. I don't hate her one bit, there has been a lot of stress from both Ava's dad and his new wife to be. I'm always the first to blame when there is something wrong. But we share her 50/50. I just need to know how to talk to Ava's dad about how I feel with Ava calling someone else mom with her being so young. She's talking better now and she knows her stepmom's name. I need help with this, I can't get past this.
