Question about my son and his paternal side of the family: update!!!
My son is 2 and has barely had contact with his faerbt he has had contact with his aunts and grandparents. He does not know yet one member of his paternal family: his uncle and his wife. They all live out of town and they have come to visit him and they have invited us to one family gathering in July and we attended as I was my paying for one plane ticket at that time.
now they invited us for thanksgiving , again out of town, and my first answer was that my sons dad and his wife probably wanted to attend. I was told that if e does, he goes alone. Then now I have to answer. I do not want to go for thanksgiving but I am considering the day after. It is only a one hour plane ride but I have to spend $ 400 on tickets. I don't really have the extra cash but it might be important for my son to connect and get to now one more relative.
woud you do something like this? Does it make us sound or look like needy? We don't have relatives in the country so for my son to get to know them, it would be like his own family. I don't want to go for thanksgiving as it s my boundary in case in the future they want him to fly alone for holidays and I want him to spend holidays with me.
any input on this?
aunties area using for our tickets so we are going
