Good Morning ladies,
LOL, Doe, you are so right!! Rarely a dull moment!
Pooh, Gosh am I glad I remained neutral. DS left my home Sat. afternoon and said that he was going home to get his work clothes and go to work. He had less than an hour to get there so I doubt there was any time for arguing. Of course, once reaching home he may not have made it at all, but I know he really needs this job and wouldn't stay home unless he absolutely had to. Anyhoo, I didn't hear from him until yesterday. I tried to call him on Sunday, but only to tell him that I had found some medication he was looking for. It went straight to voicemail. Hubby and thought she may have broken his phone again. She's famous for doing that. Finally, he calls me yesterday. I missed the call but called him back a few minutes later. FDIL answers the phone. I say hello, how are you...she says fine. I ask if it was she who called or DS. She said it must have been him and calls him..."Babe...telephone"....DS, "Who is it?"...FDIL,"It's your mother."
Okay.....Ummm...if I wasn't there, if I didn't see DS's hands swollen like the nutty professor's when he was fat, and if I personally didn't get the call from FDIL telling me about how son flipped and she might not be able to be with him, I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT I WAS CRAZY. She put DS on the phone and I told him I found the meds, and he said thanks and it was like NOTHING had ever happened!!!
And I'm not at all surprised. I've seen them do this before. Gosh, but I'm glad I've grown wiser and learned not to take sides.
Regarding grandparents rights, I have no idea what they are in my state, but I would not have attempted to enforce them. I just couldn't do that to my grandchild. I imagine it would be quite an unpleasant experience for a child to be in the middle of. Besides, this is their child. I don't want to do anything that would depreciate any of the joy being a parent brings (at least while they are little :0). I'm pretty sure that I'll get pictures and occasional visits. It would be nice to have more, but that's good enough for me. FDIL had told me a while ago that she and DS were planning to move far away just so I would have limited contact with the grandkids. That bothered me a little, but it also made me a little cold. So now when I think of not having a close relationship with GC I'll just imagine that they live far away.
