Both my mom and her bff's first grand-daughters are freshmen in college.
My daughter is very out going, has had some earned leniency from us over the years, has traveled a bit, and is thrilled to be going to a large out of state university.
My mom's bff's grand-daughter is the oldest of 10, was home schooled, no tv, social life was her family and church, was "sheltered", and is 2 hours away at a small college.
My mom's bff constantly gets calls to chat from her granddaughter and the granddaughter is thrilled to have her come down for lunch. My mom texted my daughter and asked for a date and my daughter told her she was available the first weekend in Oct. My mom was a tad upset with this. I think my mom thought my daughter should just stop her life and cater to my mom's timing. The two girls are worlds apart in who they are.... there is no way they will act the same. My mom also has been telling me how much she wants to get the girls together to meet since their schools are only an hour apart. My daughter would be polite.... but this isnt something she would EVER want to do. My mom drives me batty some days.
thanks for letting me vent,
