I will try to make this short...
My parents and my inlaws both live within 15 min of us. My dd, 1st grade, just had her first play at school this past Sat morning at 9:00. My mom and sister both said they did not want to come, "It's too early to have to get up on a Sat." Whatever...
My MIL had to work that day, she sets her own hours. She said she would not come due to work. She NEVER goes in early, even when she has to work a weekend.
My dd was so upset that her grandparents did not want to come to her play. The school really makes a big deal out of plays, and it was her first one. My dh and I, of course, were there. And the play lasted less than an hour.
My mom and sister have not apologized for not coming. My MIL just called whining how she "really" wanted to, but she just couldn't...She worked until nearly 5 as it was...WOW!!!
I get so upset when I see my dd get upset because the grandparents lack of involvement in her life. My dh is pretty ticked off too.
I feel so much better now...Anyone else have these issues too???
