Sorry, I accidently clicked the send button before I was finished typing.
Anyway.....your son sounds very similar to my son & daughter. We have 8 grand children between two of our kids. But only 2 of those 8 grand children do we get to see on a regular basis. All of them live within an hour drive from us, except the oldest, who lives 4 states away. We have not seen that one since he was 2 weeks. He is 13 years old now. The two that we do get to see on a regular basis is only about once every 4 to 8 weeks. And that is only when our son wants a free babysitter.
More often then not, our son will say that he is coming over to visit then not come. Last weekend he told us for a week that he would be over on Saturday. He never showed up. DH finaly texted him Saturday afternoon asking him if he was coming over or not. He said that he got busy and that they would be over Sunday. He never showed up on Sunday either. No call, no text, no e-mail...just did not show up. A total lack of disrespect, let alone care for myself & DH. Finally at 10:00 Sunday night he texts DH (after we were in bed and close to sleep) says that he was too busy to come over. I am really mad about it, but what do you do?
We have not had a Christmas or Thanksgiving with any of our grand children since the youngest (he is 5 years old) was a baby.
I just wanted to let you know that I understand how you feel about the way your son is treating you. And what do you say when your grand child asks you why they never get to see you? I have been asked that question more then once. Maybe I should not, but I put it back on the parent. I tell them that their mom/dad is just too busy to come over a lot. But that I love them very, very much even though I don't get to see them more often.
Please, feel free to send me SP mail any time you feel like "crying on someone's shoulder". I am here for you my friend.
HAPPY 2014. MAKE IT A FUN & HEALTHY YEAR!
