Where did the term STEP PARENT come from anyway?
Seriously where did that term STEP PARENT come from? I mean is it the term for parent who steps up, when no one else will? Is it the term for paretn who gets stepped on? Is it the term for parent who feels like they are stepping on others toes if they get involved?
Being Stepped on?
Stepping out? - that is the option I would often like to do!
In fact BM hated the term step dad so much for her new husband that she insisted the kids call him BONUS DAD (even though bonus dad put stitches in SS's head) he still gets called DAD or Bonus DAD..BM hated me so much she would not allow the kids so call me BONUS MOM or MOM...I dont even get the respet of being called step. It either my first namem that woman, SHE or HER, or half the time BITCH...and I never put stitches in anyones head. Somehow its f-ed up. I think for all my love and trying to to good for them i deserve a little more resepct than that.
