My SD is grown with 3 kids. My DH & I have made every effort over the years to maintain a relationship with her & the kids. They live nearby, but it seems like the only time she knows us, or we get to see the grandkids is at Christmas & their birthdays. We are tired of being used, but if speak up about it, then we risk the few times we get to see them at all. Just curious how you would deal w/ something like this?

I would be cordial and if she only wants to get together a couple times a year there isn't much you can do about it.

Me, I would inform her that you two would like more time with the grand kids. Maybe a weekend a month. Or just go over to her house and drop by to see what happens.
If that all fails. Just give up.
