Not Mother's Day
It's Mother's Day and you're feeling miserable. You're not looking forward at all to this day because you're afraid of being hurt, ignored, or cast aside.
Why is it so hard for stepmoms on this day?
Well, as with many moms, we just want to be recognized for the work and effort we put into raising kids that we didn't give birth to. Let's face it. It's not easy being a mom figure to kids who may not want us to be their mom. It's definitely tough when you're fighting against a momma bear who feels the urge to keep her cubs close to her, even if there is no reason for this.
Here is a short video where I share my story about my first Mother's Day, my reaction and what we've done differently since.
I'd love to hear your thoughts and experience about your first Mother's Day. What went well? What would you have liked to see happen differently?
