Dh and I have been together 14 years. We have 2 Dds , 8 and 3.
His grandma has always disliked me, she thinks I took him from her.
I've always ignored it and just gone on about life. I've helped her when she needs help, take her to her doctors apts , sit with her while she's hospitalized and take my girls to visit.
Dh doesn't have much to do with the rest if his family, they have never been close.
His grandma is the only one that most speak to.
A couple of weeks ago I brought her over some soda that she wanted and when I got there she was drunk.
I mean DRUNk!
She started yelling and screaming and raising holy hell at me.
Told me she never liked me , just put up with me because I am the girls' mom.
She has said this before, a few years ago, so I know it wasn't the alcohol talking ..
Anyways , I haven't spoke to her since.
Dh has been doing her bidding instead.

She just called him because she needs a ride to his cousins's kids bday on Sunday.
That's fine.... Except now she wants us all to go and we were not invited.
We never have been, and we also don't invite them to our children's parties.
Dh says he doesn't see the problem.... Well I don't wanna show up at a family bday that we weren't invited to.
How awkward is that?

There's no way I'd go. That would be beyond awkward!

I wouldn't go and would cut off contact with crazy grandma. Let your hubby deal with her.

Glad I'm not the only one that feels that way.

I believe you should talk to her about what she said. You may not be able to convince her to like you... But you can let her know that her blatant distaste for you was inappropriate.

Until then, I wouldn't spend time with her. That says that it's ok for her to say those things to you and she will just do it again.

She doesn't have to like you... But she will at least respect you.

Definitely wouldn't go. No comment for how to deal with the gram though.

That's basically what I've been doing since her last drunken episode.
I don't want to fight about it, should I just suggest he go with her?
