I am a step mum.
I have known my step daughter since she was 3 and been her stepmum since she was 5.
Little miss is now 8
Her biological mum has not been there for her a day in her life. She abused little miss as a baby as well.
Last time we drove 5 hours to visit, “biological mum” kicked everyone out within 10 minutes (thats not an exaggeration).
6 months later we get a phone call “biomum” wants another visit and has a Christmas present for little miss (last present was a box of hello kitty bikkies and a ribena poppa that little miss hates)
So hubby decides we will visit again and that little miss should get her a present as well, at first it was going to be something small and cheap, next second we are at the damn jewelers!!
Little miss points out some braclets, anklets and love heart necklaces. Hubby gets the love heart necklace, the mother daughter matching heart necklace!!
We are on a tight budget so a $40 necklace is not cheap and i am fuming! What has biomum ever done to deserve that! She is not a mother! Hubby and i have had many conversations about giving birth meaning nothing and that you dobt get some magical connection and that needs to be earned.
So my question is am I overreacting or out of line?
I am upset beyond words by this. I actually feel betrayed.
What do you think?
