Is anyone a step mom besides me?
I need some encouragement and a listening ear. Being a stepmother is proving to be very hard and emotionally draining especially since I can't have children on my own.
DH's daughter's mother is perhaps the most wretched, evil, conniving, lying human being I have ever met! I have always wanted a little girl, which is why I crochet baby items, but that is not in the cards for me. DH and I had this lovely notion that I could be a second mother to his beautiful daughter, but that is all it is, a lovely notion. I know it is not the daughter's fault, she is being poisoned by her mother, but Lord help me sometimes I want to shake her! DH and the mother are not on speaking terms at this point in time for the hundredth time. She is ignorant and wants to be with him simply because she gave birth to his one and only daughter. I could regal you with our history, but I will discuss the latest issue. She got a job in the evening from 3-11 and was going to pull their daughter out of the school program that is by our home. I did not want her to be pulled out, sitting with whomever learning nothing, so I told DH to pick her up. We keep her two days out of the week until the mother gets off work and the other three days he takes her home to be with her older brothers. Yesterday his daughter jumps off the ottoman and lands really hard into DH's chest and stomach hurting him. His daughter's reply was my mother hates you and I don't like you either! She told me to hit you! I was appalled. About an hour later, she hugs her dad and says she loves him and she didn't mean it, but then they start playing again, she squeezes his nose so hard with her nails that she makes his face bleed. She followed me around the house telling me that I smell and I don't bathe because her mother said so. I told DH I know that are not speaking right now, but his daughter is not going to be coming to our house disrespecting us or hitting us. He said she is hearing that from her mother and I said you need to put a stop to it now!
This is all very frustrating and I have never experienced anything like this before. Anyone else have stepmother blues?
