My granddaughters BM is going to drive me to drink....more. UGH
Quick recap. She is crazy. She hates my DS and all of us. She hates me, and I quote..."Because I let DS move in with me when they broke up." She totally thinks that if I would not have let DS move in with me, he would have stayed with her. .A little while back, she was forced to let DS start seeing his child again. He gets off a little past pick up time so I have been picking DGD up when he can't make it.
Pick ups have been great with the baby. They have been soso with BM. BM will not speak to me or anyone in the family. I mean, I can (and do) look her straight in the face at every pick up and drop off and smile and say .... "Hi BM, hows it going." She looks through me and does not say a word. And I mean just stone faced.
DGD is ALWAYS happy as a lark to see me or her father. She just smiles and reaches for us. Every time. But last night DGD was asleep when I got there. BM tried to wake her up in her carseat but she was not really waking up. So BM finally gets her out and she clings to BM. (Still asleep). I said hey granddaughter and she buried her head in BMs shoulder. At this point BM is clinging to the baby as much as the baby is clinging to her. And BM starts to whisper to the baby ..."Im sorry...Im so so sorry" LIKE THE CHILD WAS UPSET TO COME TO ME AND BM WAS TELLING HER SORRY SHE HAD TO SEND HER WITH ME.! I bout lost my shit. I had to turn around and compose myself before I said something bad. I was caught so off guard.
So for at least 2 long minutes...baby and BM are clinging to each other (baby still mostly asleep). Im just standing there not knowing what to do. I could not just take her from BMs arms. Finally I reach over and tap DGD and say.."Hey baby what cha doing. Wanna come see me?" She finally opens her eyes and notices that it is me and just starts laughing and reaching for me. I just laugh and say..aww you are finally awake and know it is me.
But I was livid. BM is going to make this child hate us one day and it makes me sick.
Oh..and DS gets her Wednesday night for 2 hours and Thursday night for 2 hours. The baby was wearing the same nasty clothes both nights. Makes me wanna spit. Thanks for the vent.
