any time I see ds with it near step mum it's always so cold. I don't see more than about a minute but she doesn't offer to say goodbye or want a cuddle or anything.
I've made it clear that I'm happy for her to be part of his family and that ds can even call her mum if he wants too, I won't get upset. But I guess that isn't the norm.
Please reassure me that some of you have fabulously close relationships with your step kids but don't do goodbyes out affection in front of bio mum.
Forgive any weird substitutions... Silly phone, but I still love it
