I have started to plan my daughters first birthday party and needed to write a guest list..trying to work out who has been involved enough in my daughters life enough to be invited and I realized that some of my friends have seen my daughter more than my husbands family and it made me so sad. My immediate family (mother and sisters) have been fantastic and see Chloe on a weekly basis but my husbands family have hardly seen her! My husband is such a good man and it makes me sad that his family don’t appreciate him enough! His own parents have only seen my daughter three times and she is nearly ten months old! Yet my hubby still wants to invite them and does not say one bad word about them. I guess that what makes me love him so much, he always sees the good in the people no matter what.
He has nephews and nieces that his parents see a few times a week, yet they make no effort to see our child and they only live ten minutes away from us! I have no idea how I am going to explain to my daughter when she grows up why her grandparents don’t want to see her. She is such a beautiful child and it breaks my heart. How can a grandparent not want to spend time with their grandchild?
Feeling sad and angry on behalf of my daughter
