So I finally sent my hub's step mom an email telling her how I felt about the way she and "her" sons (hubs 1/2 bros) exclude my hubs (and therefore my dd) from family events. I told her I would not allow my dd to grow up feeling like an outsider like her dad did. She heard me out and resolved to change things. I've invited her to dinner this Friday. We'll see how things go, but I feel better getting 9 yrs of stuff off my chest. If she doesn't hold up her end of the bargain then she is COMPLETELY out of our life and I'm fine with that too.
In 9 yrs my hubs step mom has never invited us for Christmas or Thanksgiving or any other family holiday. Only her "real" children (hubs half brothers). I posted about hosting a lovely thanksgiving feast this past wknd on FB and she called my hubs and left a snarky voice mail about it. Who the fuck does she think she is?! Its not like she invites us, so why does it bother her that we have 9 yrs worth of our own family traditions with people that actually care about us and our dd?
I want to de-friend my hubs' stepmom from fb. She comments on all her "real" grandchildren's pics and posts and totally ignores any about our dd. I couldn't care less about it, but one day our dd will notice that she isn't loved by her "so called grandma". I was a step grandchild and I remember how much it hurt me. I don't want that for my dd.
