sad little stepmom
well... today is officially one month away from our 1 year anniversary... and i'm 11 months into living with my new husband and 10 year old stepdaughter. I love them and our lives SO much..... but, I have some jealousy issues with her biological mom!
I really wish my stepdaughter were mine and that I didn't have to share her with anyone. We have a wonderful relationship and I love being with her. I get really sad, and mad, when her mom tries to arrange to get her on nights that are supposed to be "ours" just b/c her dad isn't going to be around. Like I have no rights to my stepdaughter (which I suppose I don't) but also with zero consideration of my feelings or my desire to be with her daughter.
anyway, i guess it seems ridiculous for me to feel this way - but i really really do. I need somebody to set me straight on what are reasonable expectations for me - should i limit how much i love my stepdaughter so it isn's so disappointing when i realize that she really isn't mine.
