I was just wondering if anyone has had a similar story to me!
My mother in law is absolutely devastated that we are going to
australia, I know this is perfectly normal, her sons moving to
the other side if the world, along with her grandchildren.
But we live an hour and a half away from her now and she never
visits us!I can count on one hand how many times she's travelled
up to see us in 10 years, my inlaws have a brand new car and are
both retired so have all the time in the world. Therefore I dont
understand her reacting so strongly! My family are extremely close
to us and are always there for us and our children and although
i know they are extremly upset, they are also very happy for us
and know that our life will be so much better!! It just makes me
frustrated as I want to say to her that she doesn't bother with us
or the kids anyway, we have to call her and remind her of
birthdays and anniversarys, they never call to ask about the kids,
infact they only seem to call when they want something! Harsh but
true! I bite my tongue as my husband (and he's right) doesn't want
to leave on an argument! But I just feel so frustrated!!!
(And breathe) ha ha......sorry for going on, I was just wondering if
anyone has had to put up with similar situations!
