It’s Mother’s day and you’re feeling miserable. You’re not looking forward to this day because you’re just afraid of being hurt, ignored, cast aside.
Why is it so hard for stepmoms on this day?

It’s not easy being a mom figure to kids you may not want us to be their mom. It’s definitely tough when you’re fighting against a momma bear who feels the urge to keep her cubs close to her, even if there is no reason for it.
Here is a short video where I share my story about my first Mother’s Day, my reaction and what we’ve done differently since.
