Title: Happy Mother's Day Step-Mom's!!
Post by: gemini3 on May 10, 2009, 07:33:59 AM
Happy Mother's Day to all of you step-mom's out there.  We kiss boo-boo's, make sure homework gets done, teach manners, give advice, wash clothes, comfort kids after a nightmare, buy clothes, books, toys, get haircuts, drive kids to and from school and extra-curricular activities.  We do everything except give birth - but that doesn't make us any less of a mom.
 
Here's to you and all you do!

Same to you, Gemini! 
 
I got to thinking about that today.......of course SS is with his mom and I wouldn't expect otherwise.   And I don't need Mother's Day to know how much I mean to SS.........he has his own way of showing it to me.  But he only has 3 years to 18, and I would not be surprised that he will want to spend more Mother's Days with me than his own mom after that!  Poor kid.....I know that many of the things he does is just to appease his mother and he can't wait until he doesn't have to 'pretend' anymore....
