Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I'm getting ready to marry a man who has twin 6 year old girls. I've known the girls since they were born. Their mother is not in the picture, but my fiancé's mother has really stepped in and played the role of mom. Almost to the point she doesn't understand she isn't their mother. She is having a difficult time accepting that i will be fulfilling that role now. Has anyone ever dealt with this? If so, what advice do you have?
