Taking grandson who hates me on vacation
DH knows that his daughter, the mother of our 15 year old grandson, has told him I am evil and a terrible person. Dh's ex-wife has indoctrinated this child to hate me. I have disengaged from that part of the family. I get only 2 weeks a year vacation. DH suggested we take the grandson this year. I was clear in saying NO. Thid kid records me, tallies how many glasses of wine I have on vacation and proceeds to tell his mother and his grandmother I am a drunk. I used to take him by myself on trips and NEVER drank. But, his grandmother has a thing about alcohol, so he tells everyone I am just a drunk. I only get 2 weeks a year and do not feel I should take this kid. He has made it clear that I am the worst person he's ever met. I deserve a stress-free 2 weeks! I am a very loving, forgiving person, but the insults, the conflict and the mean-spirited behavior of this stepfamily is something I disengaed from and no loinger want in my life. I gve it my all. Thoughts?
