Its been a very hectic day. Unbelieveably. Three lots of tenants in and out, joiner in filing doors at Pjt Cathedral. Ikea run. Shower fitted and bits missing. C's footie match playing top of league team.
And get in and sit down at 10pm, to food and gin, and listen to Desperate Housewives, showing how not to be a mother. This is what i live with every week. You try and be a great step mum, do stuff, be there, not to replace a mum, who can do that, but just be the best you can be, to make a child the happiest he or she can be in the worst situation - the fact that their mum and dad are not together anymore. And you get treated like a piece of shit. Instead of the most miniscule bit of appreciation that you are not being the stepmom from hell, and that you care when a child is happy or unhappy, stable or unstable, that you try and make their life ok and fun and happy when they are away from the woman they love most in the world, their mum, that same mum tries their utmost to make your life as hellish as possible.
Sometimes women are very stupid. Selfish. Self obsessed. And crazy mad with what should be let go of.
I have never had kids. I have never felt that bond of mother and child. But I do the best I can, and thats all I can do.
I hope Susan Myers realises how stupid she is being, and the writers of DH write this in the way they should.
Doubt it though, cause stepmoms are always evil, dontcha know.
