So my parents don’t get to see the kids very often unless they’re picking K up from school whenever one of us can’t and they probably saw the baby about 3-4 times in person. No fault of anyone’s. We don’t have a car and I’m not going to be traveling back and forth with them especially Jr as it’s rainy season.
A few of the times rain fell last week and week before I asked them to go for K for me and bring her home. When I went to get her from the car they kept hinting for her to come by them for the July/August vacation. I spoke to hubby about it and seeing that his work schedule changed I informed my mom that I would work around it as I’m also going back out to work in 2weeks time. I told her the days that he’s working in the day they could come for us and drop us back before he gets home.
On learning that he was working the 6-2 shift Monday & Tuesday, I messaged and told her that they can come for us Monday and gave her a time, to which she replied can’t I do Wednesday or Thursday because football going on and they want to devote all their time to them(the kids)?! Brrrrr 🤔🤔…..my husband turned to me and basically said What?…so that more important than spending time with them? They can always hear after which team won or lost. Now I can’t say I blame him because as much as Brazil may be my mom’s favorite team and what not…she’s always talking about how they don’t see the kids often. Well if you missed them so much and you really wanted to see them, to me, no football would’ve gotten in the way of that but instead as my hubby rightfully pointed out as always…they never bend or try to meet anyone. It’s always their way. So the reason she picked Wednesday or Thursday was because it had no football and those were the days in which they could have devoted all their time to their grandkids. All well and good, except hubby’s working that afternoon so he’d want to spend the morning half of the day with us and to be honest I would too as I miss him alot.
Tell me…Do you think their priorities are in order? Is it fair that I should give up the time we can spend as a family to suit them? Share your thoughts with me on this matter….I really want to hear it!
