Validation

I appreciate you stepping up to the plate and getting things done for Cinderella, especially since I can't.
She can't because she's not allowed since losing custody and all parental rights.
And she can't because her current medical condition prohibits her from being as active as she once was.

I take it with a grain of salt, but recognize and appreciate the effort it must have taken Maleficent to thank me.

I am sure any validation is great to get. Not sure we will ever get any on our end as we are the worst in her eyes. We just do our best and go each day at a time. But - what a good feeling regardless of the reasons :)

I think it is great but watch your back. I never got a thank you but if I did, I would have fell over dead. Hmm, maybe if she knew that, she would have tried it! LOL

Happy you received some validation for your hard work. I guess I'm jaded by my step situation, because I read it, and thought : I wonder what she wants from wicked stepmom. lol

I'll take anything positive over all the negativy BM throws our way.

Enjoy it while ya can, sistah...cause tomorrow is a new day.

(can you tell i'm having issues with BM right now...agh).

Wow. I would take any positivity that I could get as well. Oddly enough, my kids BM has thanked my mother, but never me. Always trying to look good to others you know. ::rolls eyes::

Sadly, I had the same response as Anonymous, based on the fact that no kindness comes without a price from some disturbed people. I hope that isn't the case here.

Validation! I think that is really all I am looking for most of the time as a WSM. Not really even from BM but from DH.

At the same time...
On the one hand I think stepmoms deserve a lot more credit than anyone, even we ourselves, give us.
On the other I can imagine having biokids (I don't just yet) and seeing another woman take such a valuable place in their lives. Although I see things from my side right now, I bet I would be pretty scared and stressed if another woman I didn't know entered my kids' hearts.
So although I will be fighting for equal respect for stepmoms through an upcoming video essay and for the rest of my life, I also deeply respect my SS's BM for having conversations with me about how we can do things for SS together.
