Yup, this Sunday is Mother's Day and Hallmark and reality are once again on a collision course. Many stepmothers will get their feelings hurt, their hopes dashed, their efforts unacknowledged and that sinking feeling of "why in the world do I even try?"
It is that dreaded time of year for stepmothers everywhere -- Mother's Day. It is reasonable that children spend Mother's Day with their mother. Meanwhile, stepmothers are left to justify why they do not care about Mother's Day.
