Re: bad daughter

When I was in high school I used to bike over to my grandma's (the one that lived in town) and listen to her stories.

Once, when I was in college I "kidnapped" her and we went looking at X-mas lights in town. I hadn't even gone home yet, just drove straight to her house. The family was freaking out - she wasn't answering her door or phone .

DM has changed her mind about this, she's feeling better and spent Thanksgiving with us this year.

This is going to be the first year that we (DH & I) have X-mas early as DSD has to work X-mas & DS will be at his dad's - We're having it the same weekend . I think DM still wants to come, but DH and I are planning a romantic X-mas - I feel a bit guilty that DM will be alone on X-mas day, but I think we'll go see her after DS gets back from his dad's

Re: bad daughter

Well! I hope you are ready.

Seriously, Please be patient with her. It will be hard at first but I am sure you two will be fine in the ens and have a wonderful relationship in the end.
I know that you will take good care of her. She is a lucky woman to have a daughter like you.

Re: bad daughter

with all the end of the year / graduation stuff going on I want to be "Snafu, DS's mom" not "DeeDee's caregiver" (aka my mom)


I'm trying to be grateful, when mom had her heart transplant we didn't think she'd live to see DS "graduate" from 8th grade ... here he is graduating from high school.

DS still thinks he has the coolest grandma as "she" picks really cool gifts ... I think that is one of the greatest gifts I could have given both mom and DS.
