My in-laws are making me sick. They have never really came over to our house or let us visit them. They rarely call or even ask about me or my daughter. You see I got pregnant with my first daughter when I was 19 years old. Their son was still in college and both of us were not ready to be parents, but we were in love and decided to keep the baby (which his mother hated, she told me to have an abortion). Well fast forward almost 8 years, we decided to have another baby, which again she tried to say we shouldn't have. So we now have an 8 yr old and a 3 month old. His parents treat them so different. It's not as though one is there grandchild and the other is not, I've even told them I'd prove it if that was their problem. My mother-in-law didn't want the first one but wants my youngest. They stop by all the time to "see the baby", well what about your other grandchild? She feels so left out. So to get attention my oldest will carry the baby and hold her while my in-laws talk to her. My M-I-L tries to yell at her for holding her sister. Well that doesn't fly around me. My daughter helps with her sister all the time and I'm very comfortable with her holding her. I just can't understand why they treat them so different. But very recently, within the last two weeks or so, they are getting distant again. I guess the "new" baby is wearing off. They have showed her to everyone and got all the attention from a new baby, I guess they are done. It still just bothers me so bad when they call and ask how the baby is and don't even mention my oldest. Thank GOD my parents spoil my oldest daughter rotten!!!! LOL
