Being a step parent, who is also struggling with infertility, sucks on Father's Day.
My husband's ex sent him a message today to say "Thanks for being the most brilliant father to OUR gorgeous son" (emphasis my own).
It just stings to be reminded of the fact my husband shares a child with this women, while I still wait. It stings, having just lost our baby and wanting to be celebrating my husband as the father of MY child, that this text reminds me that they have THEIR son.
Don't get me wrong, my step son (who I've helped raise since he was 1) and I got his Dad some neat presents, and we've all had a great day together, I just wish she hadn't felt the need to text that message. Especially since my step son is with us at the moment anyway, and I was helping him with his Father's Day recognition.
