I miss my Skids and DH is encouraging me to call but I can't get them on the phone.
They used to live with us 50/50 or more but we moved this fall and they're finishing out school before moving here full time. BM and DH are totally in agreement. No issues.
DH is overseas right now. Normally he facetimes with them daily and I say hello and hear about everything.
I had been trying to get ahold of SD15 via her phone as SD 13 never carries her phone and I had not gotten a call back as of the time I started writing this post.
BUT, SD 15 DID call back and I DID talk to her and it was really nice.
DH wants me to to try harder to have a realtionship with the girls. I never felt like I had to TRY very hard when they lived with us. They were there so we related. Good to go. But they definitely don't call me just to check im. And I don't want them to feel like they have to. They don't have to have a relationship with me if they don't want to.
But I would like it. Especially since they'll be with us full time soon.
It was fine tonight. I started this post and then got a call from SD and chatted and all was well. So we're fine. I care about these kiddos and want them to be happy. But they are not obligated to talk to ME. I'm SM.. Not morm. and I get that. I have not had a one on one convo with my SM in 20 years though. It's like she will NOT speak to me and sometimes, that hurts.
