Yep, so on your page, sister. I don't think the vast majority of stepmoms out there are the cheery kind, or there wouldn't be so many blogs dedicated to the Wicked Witch of the West, or the Evil-X, or the Egg Donor, or the many other titles that get applied to Bio-Moms.

While I know there are tolerant and decent Bio-Moms out there (I like to think I'm one of them), they seem to be few in the circles I've found. Don't beat yourself up for your feelings about The Mother in your life. Your feelings are valid. It's not cynicism, it's realism.

Wouldn't it be funny if someone bashed me for thinking The Egg Donor is crazy? She is, for the love of all that is holy. I'm not wrong for thinking so. And you're not wrong for feeling hurt about the competition and the insecurity and all the rest. It's the way it is.

Good for those that have a cheery existence. It's certainly not the norm. Maybe someday... with enough therapy.
