Oh my..........I had the warmest of warm fuzzy moments today

  1. My two older kids are my husband's from his first marriage. We have always been close and I have always referred to them as "my kids" or "my bonus kids." I treat them no different than the one child I bore. They love me but I have always been referred to as "my stepmom."

    DS was the harder of the two to win over at first, but we developed our own relationship. Last year, right after he graduated high school, his bio mother and stepdad kicked him out. No warning, no indication of why, nothing. At the time he was living here for the summer but was going to go back to her house to start college. Instead I drove him to his mother's house one day while she was at work and helped him pack up his stuff, and he moved in with us for good. He has had no contact with his mother since then. (She hasn't even tried, if that tells you anything.)

    Today I took him to the dentist, his first visit with the one here, and since he's 19 I gave him the paperwork to fill out. He gave it to me to fill out the insurance info, and then was called back. I reviewed what he filled out to make sure he did it right. Under "emergency contact" he listed me. No surprise, I was always the easiest of the four parents to reach.

    Under "relationship" he wrote "My mother."

    That is so sweet. Like the saying, anyone can be a father, but it takes a real man to be a dad. Well just switch the wording a little. Any woman can be a mother, but it takes a real woman to be a MOM.
