my parents didn't see their grandchildren for a year, we got in a huge fight and i wouldn't budge. i think of it as they're missing out not my kids. my kids are better off. just now in your heart you tried and that's the end of it. if she doesn't call, it's her loss. i started talking to my parents again a few months ago and of course we got in a fight on my birthday last week and big shocker, we haven't hear from them. i'm not going to subject my kids to grandparents that are convenient grandparents. either you're grandparents all the way or you're not grandparents at all. there's no in between and if they and your mil can't see that or respect it for the sake of the kids. then screw them. :)

I know how you feel! My mother-in-law, NEVER calls to check on her new grandbaby but when she calls because she needs something she makes a big deal and accuses us of never bringing our daughter to see her.. like it is our responsiblity to make sure she gets to see her... agh! I just learned to ignore it over time! It makes me mad then I get easily irritated when Im mad and having a toddler, haha you definitely don't need to be easily irritated!

Honey sometimes no matter how hard you try or what you do will make it work. I've been with my husband for over 9 years and its taking until about 7 months ago for her to finally open up and somewhat be cordial and act like she likes me. My advice to you honey, is for the sake of the child, don't give up, be civil, friendly even and don't exclude her. Make a point to involve her no matter what her resistance and maybe someday she'll realize what is in front of her.

Believe you me, I understand. But SHE is missing out not you. Just have the pictures and momentos waiting for when she does come around. Also, be ready with POLITE answers when she asks "Why didn't you let me know" type questions or comments.

Honey, you do what is right by God not anybody else. As long as you do what God lays on your heart to do, then she has to answer for what she does not do. She misses out not you.
