So MIL’s birthday was a few days ago and instead we were in Banff with my parents. My mom sent her a text message wishing her a most happy birthday (trying to get me brownie points and to keep the peace). MIL’s response went something like this… “You are so lucky to get to see our little one. I wish I was retired and that his sleep was better so that I could come and visit in the evenings.”
Ok, so perhaps you are wondering what is wrong with that statement? Let me explain: My parents are retired yes, but they live over 1200KM away… MIL lives 13km but works. My parents have seen little one more times than MIL. Also, what the hell does his shitty sleep have to do with not coming over? Bedtime is between 6:30-7! If you come after work for a few minutes he is a happy boy and would love to see his grandma I’m sure. It is only after he is asleep that he doesn’t sleep (super long chunks that is) So FUCK OFF! Come visit your fucking grandson and stop with the shitty bullshit excuses! Plus, we are home all fucking weekends!!! What is stopping you from coming over in the afternoon???? Please explain your bullshit excuse more because nobody understands it! Are you upset to hear that my son doesn’t make strange and reaches out to his grandparents who live so fucking far away because at least they make an effort to at least facetime with him so he hears their voices! You live 13KM away!!!! He has NO idea who you are!!! He doesn’t reach out for you, he could care less if you are around currently because sadly for him, you aren’t! MIL, you would be pissed if you knew just how much he practically lunges out of my arms when he sees our landlady because he wants to chat and cuddle with that “grandma”!!!
GROW THE FUCK UP AND SHUT UP WITH THE BULLSHIT EXCUSES ALREADY!!!
