How to Handle Being a Stepmom on Mothers Day this year.
I know the day coming so soon is making your emotions CRAZY right?
Questions spiralling through your mind such as, “Should I expect to be celebrated by my stepchild?” , “How will I handle celebrating Mothers Day with my bio kids and my stepchild be against it?”
I am sure you have thousands of “what ifs”, right? Thats okay, your not crazy, I promise! I had them as well!!
If you are being celebrated as a Stepmom on Mothers Day, then YAY!
You have an awesome and supportive family, that you should feel blessed to have. Many however, are not so fortunate.
For whatever reason you are not being celebrated or you are not sure.. this is for you!
First and foremost, as I am sure you are well-aware of, us Stepmoms get underappreciated alot!
Its the nature of being a Stepmom in today’s world, unfortunately!
Do not let this get you down!
This doesn’t mean you aren’t “important” or aren’t doing a good job at being Stepmom, I am sure your doing just fine!! Don’t let Mothers Day blues define you as a Stepmom! Your better than that! You don’t need to celebrated on Mothers day to be a good Stepmom so never think that!
Secondly, believe it or not, its not just Stepmoms who unappreciated on Mothers Day!
Yes, bio moms are unappreciated and watch many Mothers Days pass by without ever being acknowledged or celebrated! Again, it doesn’t mean they are bad moms or they aren’t loved, its just a fact of life.
Third, don’t expect the man of the house to remember and to arrange the Mothers Day celebration for you, Stepmoms!
Men do not think like us, and they tend to forget the special holidays that dont affect them! Don’t be too harsh on them, they are just men you know! 😂
Having a celebration on Mothers Day as a Stepmom isn’t neccesary. Don’t let whatever outcome you see from it affect YOU!
If you have both bio and stepchildren as I do, and your stepchild is against the celebration on your behalf, CELBRATE ANYWAY!
You are a Mom and if your bio kids want to do something special for you, let them!
Of course you can help your stepchild prepare his or her own bio mom (if in the picture) a present or card. Be supportive of him or her celebrating her as well!
Likewise, be sure to talk to your stepchild kindly and be supportive of him or her not wanting to celebrate yourself as their Stepmom! The child shouldn’t be forced too. He or she is probably feeling alot of the same emotions he/she felt when your blended family just came about! Be supportive and loving!
Your stepchild may feel as though he/she is being loyal to the bio mom by not celebrating you as their Stepmom.
The child may feel like partaking in any celebration of you would hurt the bio mom. Be sure to make your stepchild know you realize your not his or her bio mom and would never force them to do anything he or she was uncomfortable with!
Being a Stepmom is tough, I know! Some days such as Mothers Day, is tougher than others for some us!
