Other than dh having to work, it went really well. Ss19 was home, so bm invited us over for Christmas dinner. That’s not something we usually do but all went well. Dh’s granddaughter was there. She’s only 3 months old. She fell asleep on me and was so adorable.

Can I ask why she is not your granddaughter also?

Mine was great. Had DD23 and DD21 most of the holiday. Since I moved to Seattle, it is easier for them not having to commute between Seattle and Portland to see BFs family. SS20 visited which is lovely. We planned our trip to visit him in Ecuador in March.

SS18 is on his journey through depression with no small amount of teenage asshole mixed in. Hard to differentiate so I’m really disengaged. SD24 I suspect is in a really terrible place with her abuser but won’t accept it. The only positive sign is she came home to Portland without him.

She is, it’s just that it still feels really weird referring to myself as a grandma. I’m only 33. I suppose in time it will feel more normal.

Our Christmas was fine. I actually worked because most all my other co-workers have young children or family from out of town. We ended up doing everything Christmas Eve. We did PJs Before dinner and presents after to keep them separate.

My picture was bitter sweet because this time next year DS will be in the Marines and DD17 is graduating a year early. They may be here next year but our lives will be very different next year.

You are not really grandma technically so I totally get
Why you don’t feel like one. My ex is a grandpa and while we were together his daughter had a baby when she was 18. Our kids are 7 months apArt. I never felt like a grandma.

It was way better than expected. No drama. None! Kids were spoiled. Food was fantastic. My nephew got back safe to his base in Afghanistan and was able to video chat with us Christmas morning. While it on his mission he rescued a puppy, so he was on cloud 9 having something to cuddle with. (Big saint Bernard mutt puppy)
It was by far, the best Christmas in years because I set boundaries way ahead of time.
