He took her from me. He promised he wouldn't but he did. - Page 3

post #41 of 43
Hi HarleyHalfMoon,

Just popping in over here... sending hugs from another "former stepmom."

Much as I didn't want to disappear from DSD's life, her dad doesn't really want me to see her, and her visits are quite sporadic (she lives out of town) so I might see her once or twice a year. Ex-H takes her to see my mom though! Well I guess that's good but a bit odd imo.

Anyway... not much you can do except keep trying for visits. Once a month is pretty good. And good luck with the birthday party! Luckily my "replacement" is a really awesome lady, so I don't have any animosity there.

The birthday party is tomorrow. Good news, though- apparently, my Ex told me his girlfriend was coming to my son's party with them before he invited her. She turned the invitation from him down- he said she said she didn't want to make me feel awkward and not be able to enjoy my son's birthday party or spend time with my stepdaughter! I have to admit, that's very noble of her (or as my sister said, "wow, she's got brains!"). Hopefully, this means my "replacement" won't try to replace me in my stepdaughter's life. If he's got to be with someone else, at least it's someone who, on some level, thinks about other people's feelings and relationships. Keep your fingers crossed for me on that level, ladies. It's the best I can hope for.

I'm hoping she continues on that vein. So glad you get to see your sd tomorrow!! Hope the party goes well.
