Hey, it sure has been quite awhile since I was on here. Had a upper respiratory infection for one week, then had an abcessed tooth. Had that one extracted along with another, so the past few weeks have been crazy. My grand daughter is still such a joy and we keep on...keeping on. Anyway, Mother's Day.....how do ya'll handle it with your grandchild's biological mother? In the past, I've ALWAYS have sent out Mother's Day cards to some relatives and my granddaughter's mother...my daughter. This year, it just seems so hypocritical....Why send a "mommy you are the greatest and take care of me and are the most loving and selfless person in the world" card if it just isn't so? I bought a generic Happy mother's day card without the mushy sentimental stuff, without referring to her as mother, mom, mama whatever for my granddaughter to draw a picture in. I picked out one for me to give her...pretty much saying I hope you have a restful and enjoyable Mother's Day, and enclosed a tiny costume jewlery bracelet I purchased. I just could'nt go on and on with a bunch of bullcrap. I mailed them out yesterday...I hated it....I felt like she didn't even deserve these two cards.....It's so sad. She does absolutely NOTHING to raise her daughter....hardly even asks about her. After I mailed those cards I asked myself..."now why did you do that?...that was SO stupid". I'd appreciate it if some of you could share how you are going to handle Mother's Day this year.
