Vacation with bio grandkids not the step grandkids
What's the "rule" regarding vacations with bio grandkids and not taking the step grandkids?
My kids never gave it a second thought when their stepbrothers spent 2 weeks every summer at "their" grandparents house.
I have booked and planned a surprise Disney Cruise with my 2 granddaughters, ages 5 and 7. My son told me I need to treat all the kids equally and take his wife's 2 kids. I'm stunned. 5 people in a 300 sq ft room? Me by myself with 4 kids? I get to see my grandkids maybe twice/year and have been looking so forward to this trip.
I get the "treat all the same" but to what extent? What if I just want to spend quality time with my granddaughters? Are we grandparents just supposed to stand idly by and do as we're told? I'm nice to the steps, send birthday gifts, cards on holidays...but why do I have to sacrifice my limited time to appease my son and his wife?
