Happy New Year, MOM!

Happy New Year my lovely ladies!

Something was mentioned on a Facebook group I am a member on.

The question was, how do you feel when a stranger refers to you as the "Mom"?

I thought about this.

Although it hurts, being childless because I am NOT the Mom or A MOM, it makes me happy for people to think a) my SD looks like me (not a vanity thing; just to feel a connection to my husband somehow), and b) someone recognizes my Motherly duties.

If the stepchild does not correct the stranger, why should I?

It only makes my SD feel uncomfortable and it is not like I SAID it.

Besides, a child can have many "Moms" and in this day and age, a child really needs several.....
