Adult kids, steps and my own
Maybe my SAD is kicking in, but lately I have not been happy with any kids, including my own. Daughter attends college thousands of mile away, in a state where her father lives part time with a girlfriend. Yes I agreed to it because I would be the bad guy. Anyway informs me that she is not coming home for Thanksgiving because her father’s girlfriend’s son is turning 21 and she wants to be there. Ok, I seethe quietly and she throws out coming home Columbus Weekend. I book the ticket for her. Turns out her best friend home turns 21 that weekend. Trying hard not to feel a little hurt.
My DH and I are planning a trip in January. We rarely travel but it usually involves family or my kids or lately his. He asked about inviting his daughter. I told him NO. This week for us. He is free to plan a week with his kids or whomever. I AM SONE PLACATING ADULT KIDS UNGRATEFUL. including my own! My daughter, who stayed this summer at beach rental for a week, says oh don’t rent the same house...it was nice but creepy.
Guess what? I’m tired of pleasing these adults. The whole lot of them! Anyone can relate?
