Not in an unhealthy way but I'm totally jealous of the people who have parents that spend Easter with their kids.
my kids grandparents suck , at least the ones who live in our state , and don't bother with our kids on holidays. ...or really any other days.

I just needed to get that out. I see so many loving grandparents and it is so beautiful to see how close some families are.

I am sorry. My kiddos have some pretty awesome grandparents.

They even have involved great grandparents. The only thing that sucks is one set live in England and we dont get to see them as often as we'd like :(

i get that feeling, I live and hour and a half away from my parents and I invited them to my house for easter supper and to spend time with the kids,  instead they're hosting my brother, his crappy girlfriend, and a family friend and her two kids.

Initially my mom said she didn't have the gas to be coming here for the holiday,  yet she offered to give me 40.00 to come to her place ,  I declined and stayed home..   I know it's not the same but it sucks

That is really sad. I'm sorry that they don't spend time with them. 

I'm sure they still had a great Easter.

aw I'm sorry. Holidays haven't been the same for me since I became an adult. It sucks but we have to deal.

Just about the only time that we see my dad is Christmas.....maybe once or twice more throughout the year.


The rest of the grandparents we don't have contact with.  I am sad for my kids sometimes but we love on them as best as we can.  Everyone has different family dynamics and I made choices to remove harmful people from their lives.  Hugs!

i agree to some extent. I love holidays because I miss my cousins and these are the only times I get to see them. Im jealous of people who have sane in laws.

I know how you feel, Mama. Luckily my Mum makes up for my Dad and my husbands parents.
