My boyfriends parents are retired and for the past 3 years they go to Phoenix Jan, Feb and March to get away from all the snow here in Canada ( I don't blame them ) However my daughters birthday is Jan 26th, they weren't here when she was born they came home a week later and now they said they won't be coming at all to her birthday. They have 3 other grandchildren and are able to make it to all of their birthdays because it doesn't fall when they are in Phoenix. My boyfriend and I think it is completely un fair and crazy that they wouldn't want to come and would much rather be somewhere hot than at their grand daughters first birthday....Are we being to irrational? Or are we actually mad for a good reason?
** To get this straight. I understand that she won't remember and that she doesn't care who comes HOWEVER if they weren't here when she was born then they go ALL year knowing what day her birthday is and don't even attempt to plan around it, then they are never going to come to her birthday. I'm worried about that mainly....she is going to grow up seeing them come to all her cousins birthday and not hers, she will not be old enough to understand and it will hurt her. I could care less if they come it's mainly for the sake of my daughter....If they don't come this year who's to say they will ever come***
