My Darling Husband is stepfather to my son.  His father gets him on actual father’s day just like your arrangement with the mother.  DS is younger so I ask if him if he wants to make Darling Husband a card or we pick something out for him.  IDK how old your stepchildren are but I would think your Darling Husband would do the same for you.  Being a step-parent is hard and I think deserves attention on mother/father’s day.

If I were you, I would prepare for the (likely) possibility that she will decide at the last minute to take the kids on Mother’s Day, and you and your Darling Husband should make plans for a nice, relaxing day.  Kids usually aren’t sensitive enough to celebrate a stepmother on Mother’s Day, even if you are taking care of them full time, so you should talk about your feelings with your Darling Husband, and maybe your family can pick a day near mother’s day and the kids can make you homemade cards and presents and take you out to brunch.  When the kids are grown, they will understand that their mom wasn’t there for them, and hopefully appreciate all you’ve done for them.

@hecallsmelove:  Stepmom here! Bio-mom ALWAYS gets SD on Mother’s day, and Fiance will take her to pick out a card for me.

@hecallsmelove:  this is my first Mother’s Day as a stepmom since weve been married about a month. I’m not expecting anything. They will be with their mom because that’s her weekend per their schedule. But our situation is different because they have 50/50 custody.  I’m okay with that, their mom is their mom and I’ve only been in their lives for short time in comparison.
