I have read through several other threads and I wanted to add that I did not realize the term BM was insulting or I would not have used it.  I've read other posts where the mother of stepkids was referred to as BM, and that's why I did the same.   Just wanted to mention that before I offended someone because I am new to this forum and I hope that I can find people that are willing to share their experiences with me.  Thanks!
