And I think that I do a little ( I am not talking about love because I love all of my grandchildren with all of my heart) ...
BUT my daughters comes over almost everyday ( with her 2 kids) , she lets me babysit when she has to go somewhere, she lets me play an active role in their lives ( as in I can take them places, or I can go places with them, she asks my advice, etc) .....
I will admit that I dont care for my daughter in law... I just dont think our personalities connect and honestly she is just very "fake" ... she will talk about how much our family means to her , and then she complains about her friends ( alot of them are big partiers) , but yet when it comes time for her needing someone to watch the baby - she chooses the friends ... They moved to another town for her job ( and then she quit a month after moving there ) ... I have went to visit and then they act like I am intruding, I always ask them to come here and offer to watch the baby so they can do stuff, but they refuse.... I have just started to accept that I dont really have the chance to be as close to their daughter... I feel like I have tried everything and it only makes it worse.. I would love nothing more than to be able to see ALL of my grandbabies all the time.... and now it just hurts even more because now he is mad saying that I dont WANT to see her and that I love my others more.... It isnt true, and I dont know why he cant see that... I go there to see her and then she will put her for a nap or invite her friends over ( after I am already there she will call them up) so she can have a playdate with their kids... if they come here they dont stay very long ....
What else can I do ?
