Please give me some advice on how you would feel. Right know I have too many pregnant homones to know if I'm wrong for feeling the way I do. I married Mike 5 1/2 years ago along with 4 of his children. The oldest is a mommas boy but moved in with us after his mom wouldn't let him move home after and short time in the military, he's been here not even a year. Then Michelle who has lived with us almost since we married because her Mom thought she would do better here with us and she has. She doing better in school etc. The 2 youngest we see every month or so since Mike and his exgirl friend don't see eye to eye on things. Well Michelle told me before we got married she would never call me mom as she only has one Mom and I'm cool with that. She gives me mothers day cards and letters telling me how special I am to her and what I difference I have made in her life etc. Well she has had a boyfriend for a little over a year and has gottren close with his grandmother. She pasted away last Friday and so me being brought up to bring food to the house I made a giant pan of baked ziti, a salad and garlic bread. My sister and I bring it over to her BF's Moms house and since MIchelle is already over she meets me at the van and helps bring in the food. as we walk in she says "mom where do you want us to put this food?" It first didn't hit me then she is intraducing My sister and I to everyone "and this is Sandy" When she intraduces my sister to his parents it's this is Mom and Joe" It was almost like a slap in my face. She can call this women who has not cared for her or loved her like I have her mom but yet I'm just Sandy??? It really bothered me all today at work so I tell Mike how I feel and he's just like it's no big deal you know how she feels about you yada yada yada yada. I'm like I can see it now they get married and she will say meet my Mom and Tim (her step father) and this is daddy and Sandy and this is Mom and Joe. It just feels like she has forgotten all the love and things I have done for her. We have had many talks before I got pregnant and I would tell her she is my only daughter. We had given up ever having a child so she is my first child in my eyes! I've raised her and help shape her into the strong person she is versus the weak person she was before she came to us. Mike say's I should tell her how I feel but I don't want her to start calling me mom jsut because she thinks she has too. Am I wrong in feeling the way I do?? Sorry this is so long!
