mother's day [May. 11th, 2011|07:00 pm]


Hm, it's interesting how the really nitty-gritty realities of divorce don't seem to hit you until your twenties...

So, my dad got remarried about 2 years ago (after about 10 years of being divorced), just after I graduated college. His wife is wonderful. I like her, and I like that she makes my dad happy. But who is she? Is she my stepmother? Technically, yes. But I never lived with her, she didn't have any influence in my upbringing. Is she my stepmother? Should I have gotten her a card for mother's day?? I did text her on Monday saying that I hope she had a great mother's day weekend, so I could let her know that I had thought of her and hoped she was happy. But actually wishing her a happy mother's day felt weird to me.
