My husband's dad and step-mom told us that they were going to come by last Monday and take our oldest ds out to chucky cheese or the park. They never called, texted or showed up but whatever. I wasn't really surprised. But then yesterday his step mom texts me and says "hey, sorry we didn't come get Kheon, we've been short on cash lately." And I said its ok, I totally understand. Then like a half hour later she texts back and says "oh btw, we are having a super bowl party. Feel free to stop by."

Lol ok. So you have extra cash to throw parties but not take your grandson out. And they wouldn't even have to take him anywhere. He would have been happy just going to grandma and grandpas house for a couple hours.

Wth? If they didn't have the money they shouldn't have offered. Obviously they did because they're having a super bowl party. But like you said, they didn't have to take out, just spend sometime with him.

They should have at least spent some time with him.  It didn't have to be at a place that requires money to enjoy.  They could have taken him to the park!  Ugh...my inlaws can be like that too.  It's really irritating.

It is sad, but I have learned to not tell the boys when my mom says she is coming over bc she flakes out so often. If she follows through now, it is a happy surprise for them and there are no more hurt feelings.

Some people just don't get it...
