So a few years ago, my aunt died leaving behind 3 girls (5-7) and her ex husband. About 8 months later, my uncle was engaged to a woman that everyone thought was perfect. She was pretty good with my cousins, she was nice to my family, she was good for my uncle it seemed.

Well when they started planning the wedding, ESM (evil stepmother) said that the wedding could only be on 1 date: the 1 year anniversary of my aunt’s death. This devastated the girls of course and I’m sure it bothered my uncle too. But it HAD to be on this day because it was the ONLY day ESM’s (evil stepmother) mom could get off work to come to the wedding. Yes, a random a** Tuesday was the only day that this wedding could happen. Riiight.

Everyone in the family tried to discourage it for the sake of the kids until ESM (evil stepmother)  turned bridezilla and threatened to univite my uncle’s side of the family entirely. She dug her heels in and insisted that the wedding would be all white, including her dress even though she was married twice and had 2 kids from the previous marriages. Nothing wrong with that but she shamed my mom for having been divorced once (ESM cheated in her marriages, my mom escaped an abusive situation, huge difference) She had to get married in the St. Louis cathedral (a pretty big and famous church in La. It’s a big deal to get married there) ESM (evil stepmother) blew the budget big time (according to my mom)

Ok moving on. So since we were all still grieving, especially the girls, we weren’t all too excited for the wedding, the parties, the shower, etc. And ESM (evil stepmother) took this very personally. I wouldn’t blame her if half the family wasn’t happy about a marriage but what she did was unforgivable. She uninvited my uncle’s daughters from the wedding. 5, 6, and 7 year old grieving little girls were left at home with a babysitter while their father married the biggest mistake on the planet. This was not a childfree wedding by any means. Her kids were there, my brother and I were there, there were plenty of kids.
