I have two boys 15 months & 8 years old none of my family has anything to do with me or them my mother lives 15 minutes from me but never stops by to see them or to call & ask about them. Me & my mother are on speaking terms in fact we’re rather friendly to each other but why doesn’t she care about my boys? I have a 17 year old daughter who she helped me raise becuz I was in high school when I had her, she’s over there every weekend & all summer but it’s like Molly is her only grandchild. My boys are not the only ones beingleft out all of my sister’s kids are the same it’s like Molly is the “chosen grandchild” sometimes it makes me hate my mother when I look into my sons eye & know he doesn’t have her in his life I feel so sad for him for them more so for the 8 year old becuz he knows she doesn’t care. She’s not a bad person, but once she told me not too long ago that she likes girls alot more than she likes boys & can’t relate to boys as well as she relates to girls well I think that’s total bullshit. I grew up with 2 other sisters I don’t have a brother or men in my life besides my husband but I raise my boys just fine. I didn’t need a handbook to tell me how to play with them or love them, it just came naturally like it does with her & girls. I don’t know why it bothers me so much it just does. maybe becuz there other grandmother lives so far away. How can I beat it in her head that she has 2 adorable loving grandsons 15 minutes away that wants her in thier life?
