Anyone watch Dr. Phil today? BM vs. SM
I am enraged. I am enraged at the fact that Dr. Phil made it a point to tell one of the stepmothers that she is NOT the BM and should set boundaries.
Someone please tell me WTH our responsibilities are? If we do "too much" we are accused of trying to be the SK's biological mother- we are told we can't take place of the mother....(NO SHIT! MOST OF US DON'T WANT TO!)
If we disengage and take a weekend to primp ourselves we are evil b*tches that want nothing to do with the kids and who have no business being with someone who has children?
I guess my new motto is - I'll do what I want ; ) You can judge if you want to.
Another thing I noticed - I think Dr. Phil missed WHY alot of us resent the BM...now I know not ALL BM's are crazy...and some BM or BF and Steps do get along which is great - if you are one of those people...BUT they missed the whole BM sits on her ass and does nothing ALL day while the kids are in school and takes trips to the beauty salon and goes out at night every night to drink while our husbands/boyfriends/whatever slave at work for a paycheck they don't even get half of....? Shouldn't the parent with the money - who works hard to set a good example have custody? WTH.
