Hi there. I am writting to see if anyone else is in my shoes or have experienced this before. I have a soon to be 16 year old step daughter. My realtionship with her is kinda rocky. You see, her biological mom is her, "best friend", don't get me wrong...there is nothing wrong with that...BUT I think its the wrong type of best friend, her biological mom drinks with her, parties with her and my SD's friends. She's the "cool" mom, the Biological is also on MY SPACE with my SD and her friends. I don't share any of these with my SD. I've always told her that I am a parent first not her "BUDDY". So, this Mother's Day...it hit me hard... She text me Happy Mother's Day (as she was with her mom...my husband and I share 50/50 with his ex) where she got her mom 6 CARDS AND FLOWERS. I have known her since she was 2 years old. I feel like I'm losing this battle. It really hurt my feelings. I want to tell her....but it seems like it'll go thru one ear and come out the other. I also don't want her to tell her mom that my feelings are hurt... beleive me she'll get the satisfaction!!! All in all I truly think I have been a good parent....NOT perfect...but a good parent. Anyone out there feeling the same way? Thanks
