I gave birth to my first child 2 months ago and my mom has no plans to come meet her new grandson (she lives on FL I live in IL). Money is not an issue at all and she just traveled to MN and WI to visit other family (just for fun, not for any occassion in particular) but told me she has no plans to come see him, she's busy, she'd have to rent a car and that's expensive etc..excuse after excuse. Am I the only one who has a mom that doesn't want to jump on a plane the minute their daughter is in labor? I feel sad she doesn't want to meet him and I just don't get why he's not a priority. I grew up with amazing grandparents who we saw all the time even though we lived in a different state, I really wanted the same for my children. Any advice or thoughts?

That is just awful!!!!!! My mom and I hadn't talked in yrs and when I had my DD she came out when she was a few months old to see her. She's been in her life ever since!
