Absence Makes the Heart Grow...Stronger
Haven't had my daughter or granddaughter's biodad over for the past week. It's been fabulous. Grand is happier and more relaxed now than she's been since, well, ever! I think I'm going to keep her parents away for a couple of weeks unless she really starts pining for them. There is just so little gained by the disruptive visits. Why should my daughter get that ego boost of being fawned over by my granddaughter, then disappear to leave the little girl feeling abandoned yet again? No point to putting her (or me) through that, so let's see how it plays out.
