PineFarmMom Posted June 8, 2009 Share Posted June 8, 2009 My son has his first ever guitar recital tonight. On the spur of the moment, knowing fully about this for a month, my father dropped everything and drove to Dallas to pick up a stupid boat motor. My dd had her piano recital a month ago, and he and mom came and he took all of us for ice cream and made a huge deal of it! He goes to stuff for my nieces and nephew an hour and a half away. This is my son's first activity in over a year, as he opted out of team sports this year. I'm so hurt and sad and angry!! My son was Baptized a couple of years ago, and my father laid on my couch rather than go...he claimed to have a headache. He went to other grandkids' Baptisms but not my son's. My mom seems to have to force him and she enables him like nobody's business, rather than just calling it what it is. He has emotional problems that scream at my brother, sister and I, but mom only talks about how strong he is and how she doesn't know any other men who work like he does. Please!!!! :glare: I wish there was an emoticon for rolling on the floor laughing while rolling my eyes at the same time and banging my head against a wall while crying from the hurt I feel. It's all so ridiculous. My son told me in front of my mother today that dad wasn't coming. After he walked away, I informed her that they would no longer be invited to my children's activities, that way the favoritism wouldn't be so obvious. I let her know how I feel about it all, and that's just not done in my family, not to their faces anyway. It was done today, though! I can't decide if I feel glad I did it or guilty. I want to handle it Christ's way, but I'm so hurt I don't know how to do it right now. :*( Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
