Seven Years Since We’ve Seen the Gskids
Today is my step grandson’s 18th birthday. I don’t typically post about the gskids, since we haven’t seen him or his youngest sister since September, 2011.
Their mother is both a GUBM and a narcissist who pumped DH and I for every dollar she could get. It was a completely screwed up, one way relationship, and when I finally called OSD out on something cruel she did to her dad, she went ballistic. As with many narcs, OSD has a vicious, win at all cost mentality, and no one in DH’s family crosses her. The change was instantaneous; we went from seeing/talking to the gskids almost daily to zero contact. They stopped calling, and calls to step grandson’s cell phone went unanswered. We continued to send birthday and Christmas cards, but OSD returned them so DH gave up after three years.
I guess I’m only probing old wounds, but clearly we weren’t that important to the gskids or they would have reached out to us at some point. Their mom was already encouraging the kids to hit us up for $$, but it still surprised me that she was able to effect such a complete change overnight.
Part of me hopes SGS will magically reach out to DH today, but my rational side knows it won’t happen.
Steplife sucks, and the dysfunction just goes on and on down the generations.
