Why doesn't my mother want to be in my son's life?

Long story short my mother lived with me and my husband. We completely took care of her 100%. All she was asked to do was be at our sons birth and stay home with me for the first week so that my husband could go back to work immediately to pay the bills. Needless to say my son was born on christmas eve last year (just turned one) and my mom wasn't there. She thought it was more important to be with her boyfriend working on their relationship. Did she come home to help me with the baby? NO...so my husband had to stay home from work and we ended up struggling for a little bit money wise because of it. We ended up telling her in April that we couldn't afford to take care of her anymore and it was time for her to move on. After she moved out she hasn't seen the baby at all except for one time for about 20 minutes. We just had his first birthday party and she didn't come as well as did not call him on his actual birthday. Why is she like this and should I just give up on her.

I have and every time I do she says "its not that I don't want to be in his life...im just busy and don't have the extra money to drive to your house." Number 1 she has nothing but time. she is a part time student and that's it. she doesn't work or anything. Number 2 I only live an hour away from her. If she doesn't have the time or money to come see her ONLY grandchild at the very least for his 1st birthday then how does she have the time or money to go to florida for vacation for 10 days....which needless to say she didn't want to tell me about because she knew I would be mad about it.
