Rights of a stepmother
I am involved with a man who has 3 amazing daughters. we all get along very well until recently. father has recently received overnights during the week as well as every other weekend and we as a family have gotten closer. Biological Mom has had a real problem dealing with, as she puts it, "father taking her children away from her". She tells people she is getting use to the idea but we know different.
the girls like to hang out with me and their father allows that to happen. Mom claims that the time they should be spending time with the father and spend it with me, she should have them. although, she can drop them off to her sisters or mothers house whenever she needs to do something. father spends quality time with them and alot of times he asks to do things with them and they rather run with me and do things, so he allows it. mom objects. she has even told one child that if she is not with her father she should not be with me, she should be with her mom. mom tells us things the children say and recentlyt, she has told father that the middle daughter says she doesn't want to hang out with me, but does it becasue dad only watches sports on tv. that is so not true. when asked the daughter about it, she denied it.
my question is , is it wrong for me to want to do things with these girls. Is mother right when she says if father is not spending time with the girls, than mother should have them.
