I am sure some of you are step moms and my two daughters have a step mom. First of all, I appreciate my daughters step mother ONLY for the reason she makes sure my kids are doing ok. But, when is it too much? Well, I can actually answer that, but I need to know what legal rights they have with step kids? The SM signs all of my kids school stuff, whether it be a reading log, assignment notebook, school documents (she is on registration paperwork), everything else. Just yesterday I noticed that she had written over my signature in my daughters assignment notebook AND rewriting over my comments from this past Friday. Can she override ME? I am mean legally? I know morally she cannot, she is trying to be mom and not staying in her place! Also, I made the inital step to get counsiling for my daughter becasue she is cutting herself, now her father and SM knew this was going on a long time and never told me until I brought it up to dad. I immediatly made appointments for my daughter to see a counsilor. THis SM called the counsilor and askes him to make appointments for her on their weeks (don't get me wrong that is totally fine with me) but then trys to knock my insurance out and place it on her insurance. Also, the father is NOT involved in my kids lives (actively) he is "there" and that is it. My daughter's teacher e-mails me and askes if it ok to have conferences with SM. My kids father has maybe attended only one conference SM attends them all, I know becasue I am ALWAYS there and he is not. This is more indepth becasue I am taking him back to court for full custody and we go him on so much. But I need to know legally can she override my decisions on my own children? She sent me an e-mail (1st one she ever responded to) and said if I do not want to go to any of my daughters doctor appointments she will tell me what is going on - I MADE THE FIRST APPOINTMENT I FOUND THE COUNSILOR! I mean come on. I don't want to talk to her, I did not have these girls with her! How does the court see this interference? Can I sue her while I am at it?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
