I have been married to my husband for 4 years and have been raising his 2 daughters for almost 5. About 3 years ago, their mother just up and disappeared. No phone calls, no letters, no support, no nothing. Last week out of the blue she has just magically reappeared and wants to act like nothing has ever happened. My oldest SD is really angry with her and doesn't really want to be bothered with her. She is 16. My youngest SD, age 14, is so excited and talks to her all the time. My husband and I have not done anything to stop this, but I find myself getting more and more angry with each passing day. I don't want to sound like I am jealous or anything, but maybe I am. I have been the only mother figure in these 2 girls' lives for the last 3 years and now their mother expects me to share them. To be honest, I don't want to. We are a very close knit family. My husband, me, the 2 girls, and my son from my first marriage. My husband and my son get along great and so do the girls and I. Last Sunday we left my youngest go with her mother and she came home with a bag of clothes. What is so strange about that? Well, normally nothing,but these clothes were her mothers and really not appropriate for a 14 year old. Shortie shorts, really mini-mini skirts, black stockings and some really low cut shirts. She thinks that these are the coolest clothes and her dad and I don't. The girls' mother has a very bad rep in our little town and most people do not use very nice words when referring to her. We have tried to protect the girls from this, and have been able to do so. Is it wrong for me to be angry? I need some advice before I go insane. I feel that my family, that I love more than life itself is in danger of falling apart. I know their mother and she always is scheming.
