Smom? What’s a Smom? I get this question often. My stepkids call me Smom. My husband and I went on our honeymoon and my stepdaughter wrote us a note when we got home and she wrote it “s.mom” in that sweet note that told me how excited she was to have a new “s.mom”. From there they started calling me Smom.
Yes ,it seems silly to write a blog about this, but this is something special to me. I am very aware I am not their Mother and would never want them to call me “mom”, they have a mom. So when we came up with the special name it gave an identity to my unique role I play in their lives.
When we are out and the kids call me Smom some people just assume they are say mom, but others will ask what it means. I love being able to tell them my sweet given name 🙂
I encourage all stepmoms to find a special name, we are a special addition to their lives and that deserves a special given name.
All you Smom’s out there you ARE Special!
