Now that's he lives with us, he's the same way about his mom. :LOL I think this is natural for a child who is living between two homes, for a couple of reasons.
1) the weekend parent usually does fun stuff, while the custodial parent is the one who makes them do their homework and chores and all the un-fun, day to day stuff
2) they just don't get a change to "miss" the custodial parent, so that parents never get's the "COOL, I get to see my mom/dad"
I can see how your DSS might especially be expressing his excitement for seeing his mom since she was absent for so long. I hope your SO can come to understand that it doesn't mean his son loves him any less.
