My boyfriend and I have been together for a year now. I have a 15 yr old dd and he has a 9 yr old dd. We all get along fine together and have a good time. The 9 yr old's mother (who cheated and left my bf for another man, I should add....3 years ago!) is totally crazy over the girl spending time with us. When her daughter mentioned an activity we had planned for the coming weekend, her mother yelled, "You see, she is trying to replace me!! I knew this would happen!!" This is what the 9 yr old shared with BF. He has tried talking with her and saying that of course I am not trying to replace her and that at most I will be an important person in the child's life. She doesn't seem to stop however and it makes the child very confused because she actually likes me.
I feel very disheartened about it sometimes and can see that is makes my BF upset.
Has anyone else been through this sort of thing?
