Excited Step - Granny .....until
I hope I don't ramble on and on.
I am a new step grandparent. My 25 year old SD had a baby 3 weeks ago. My SD looks at me as a mother figure and as a grandparent. My husband and I have not been to see the baby due to the drive time it would take since she lives in a different state and our work schedule. Several days ago my husband tells me that he is going to use his vacation time and goes to spend 3 days with his daughter and Grand-baby at the end of January. I would not be able to go because of work and we have young children that are in school. I was hurt, disappointed, and felt excluded, seeing that my DH would plan a trip to visit without me. I told him if this was our Bio daughter he would not even think to go visit without me. Am I being over sensitive? Maybe dad and daughter need Rhys time together. My DH has always wanted his daughter to be looked at as "our" daughter. I just have a hard time looking at her as "our" daughter because her father picks and chooses what he wants to share with me about his daughter. I have chosen to love my SD in spite of the over protectiveness and guilt displayed by my DH. I just can't stand when he excludes me and I've told him this. Again, am I making much to do out of nothing? :? :?
