So, both of them are complete alcoholics!! I am constantly having an off and on relationship with my mom and me letting my daughter stay over there. Back in the day the only way they could keep her for the night was only if my super awesome step-sister was staying there.
Just to let you know that this has been going on since I was 13. They would get drunk and smack each other around once in a while, and sometimes it would get so bad he would put her head through a wall.. But there was NO thought in my mind that they would do that in front of my 3 year old. Especially since my daughter has never said anything before and my step- sister was always around..
But, I gave my mom a chance last weekend. Just ONE MORE CHANCE to redeem herself a bit.. I picked her up Monday, my mom had been drinking wine the entire day!! (had an agreement NO DRINKING WHEN THEY HAVE MY DAUGHTER) so I was already upset... Today, my mom calls, I ask my daughter if she wants to say Hi, "No thank you ".. Ok? Me: you want to say bye to grandma?
My daughter: "Nope."
I ask her "are you mad at grandma?"
"Grandma got pushed into a wall and fell down"
Ok, I'm reminding you she's 3!
So after talking about it, she tells me all of it, "Grandma and grandpa had a fight and were yelling and they hit each other in the face and grandpa pushed grandma into the wall and she fell down"...
I'm pretty DAMN SURE she did NOT just make this up out of the blue.. So guess what? No more Grandma unless I, or my husband are present AT ALL TIMES! Can you believe that? My own mother doing getting drunk and both be abusive towards each other in front of my daughter.. Disgusting..
