  • I don't understand that kind of behavior. Even with others asking her to? I'm sorry it worked out that way. If the rest of the time was as discouraging I would reconsider doing it again. Best wishes.

  • She's the one missing out on special moment with her grandchild. At least those of you who were watching her swim have those memories. It would probably bother me too, but she's the one who missed out.

  • Try not to judge too harshly. She may have personal reasons why she didn't come watch. Sometimes we jump to conclusions about people and their reasons for why they do what they do. Remember it isn't against us that they make their choices, it is a personal matter that we may never understand and even if we did know why, that may not help you to understand. Just accept her for who and what she is and I promise you will have a great relationship with her based on that mutual respect. Good luck!

  • I'm sorry. Don't let it spoil the Big accomplishment! My DD had her first DD. After 2 wonderful boys! Her MIL didn't acknowledge this birth with even a card or anything thing! Not even words of congrats'. This is her first Grand Baby daughter. I don't understand it!! Just be proud of the good. If one chooses not to praise or care. It is their issue.

  • I would have thought wow the only one who was missing out was her. I would have said something to her when your daughter was out of ear shot so you want to be nasty to her the only one who is going to be hurt is you. Then tell your daughter sometimes grandma does not play well with others. That's what I had to tell my then 5 year old when my mom would not come out and watch him throw the football.
