i dont know what my moms problem is. she will go like 3 months without even attempting to do anything with cameron and it pisses me off to no end. well now its more bullshit. camerons birthday party is may 25th.. 5 damn minutes from her house, and only 2 hours. so youd think she wouldnt have an excuse right? wrong. shes claiming she may have to work saturdays all of a sudden, so she wont know til the week before. its like come the f**k on request it off since you know this far in advance. i mean, if she really does pull some shit and not come, im really tempted to just tell her im done with her. i mean i love her, i want her to be apart of camerons life but i feel like she doesnt even care about us anymore. just sick of always hoping she will change and being let down

I'm sorry it's like that. I would be upset too. If she really does have to work, I wouldn't hold it against her unless she makes no other attempt to do something with LO for his bday on another day.

I would stop inviting her, and if she confronts you about that just say "I didn't think you'd show up since you never bother."



My mother does the same shit. She lives in the next state but when I ask her if she wants to come up and see the kids, she flat out refuses. Yet she'll watch my stepsister's kid every weekend so she can go to the bar. Whatever.

I wish I had an answer for ya looking for one myself. My MIL is the same way all of her grand kids live within a 15 minute drive from her and she always cancels the day before. We even offer to go and get her and bring her. We know the issue she drinks only at home parties are always on the weekend so it's an in convince for her to give up her drinking days for the kids. We just stopped inviting her.
