I decided that instead of waging war, I would instead just ignore it. I know it’s the pacifist’s way out but it’s probably the safest way for now.
I don’t know how much longer I CAN ignore it though because just this past weekend as her brothers were getting ready for sleepovers with my MIL and Dad, Breezy asked me if she could have a sleepover. Uh, Ok. But I didn’t have anywhere for her to go and I don’t like asking anyone last minute so I didn’t have anywhere for my poor girl to go.
She asked me, “Can’t I go to Nana’s?” Ugghhh unfortunately she doesn’t understand (or maybe it is fortunate) that nana never takes my children for sleepovers. No matter how good they are. I could only reply to her, “Honey, we didn’t ask nana and it’s too late now.” But it still gets me because I know that even if it wasn’t too late, my mom wouldn’t take her. I know this. It’s as fact as the world is round.
Blogging on myspace where I know my mom is surely to see would probably be a waste but it’s still a thought in my mind. I just haven’t found the right words for expressing my dissatisfaction with her and her lack of grandmothering skills.
