The awkward status of stepmothers on Mothers Day
Are you a stepmother who dreads Mother’s Day?
Or a mother-mother who dreads Mother’s Day?
Or an auntie-parent who dreads Mother’s Day?
As a bonus to my already somewhat overflowing offerings this week, I’m sharing this piece, which I wrote for the Today Show five years back, but which holds up surprisingly well.
What I mean is that in retrospect, I wouldn’t change or update much of this nine-point-plan for step parenting.
Maybe you — or someone in your circle — would benefit from reading this.
For you, yours, your moms, and for all people who mother — I hope you have a lovely and peaceful day.
