We had them over, the kids were marvelously charming. The food was fantastic and the conversation was pleasant. I waited....waited...
We served dessert. We sang happy birthday. The kids blew out the candles. They left shortly after. No. Presents. Not. One.
No cards for the kids.
I am furious. They have NEVER given their OWN grandchildren gifts for their birthdays. They expect a relationship with us and to see our kids but never dote on them at all. They give Dan a gift every year, but to no one else in our family. It's wrong. The kids are going to see this eventually and be hurt.
Dan says I am just not used to their kind of rejection.
My family is not like that.
I hope I never get used to it.
PPBBBBBTTTTT! on them.
I've missed you, dear Diary.
