Quoting Supafly★:" I read it and I think I commented on it too with some wacky tidbit about my family lol. My family ... [snip!] ... with me. I knew my grandma was going to be there and I didn't want to cause drama for her - my step-witch did enough of that."
Quoting The Dandelion Rapist:" It's mainly my mom who is the crazy one. She has been through some smurf in her life though so I try ... [snip!] ... she is a better mother to his 9 year old daughter than she was to us growing up. For my future step sister's sake anyways. "
Quoting Supafly★:" Aw, that's so sad. I try to go easy on my mom because her childhood was okay but what my dad did to ... [snip!] ... Now she's much more involved with her stepkids' lives too than she is with my brother and I and that kind of ticks me off. "
Quoting Lady GooGoo™:" Wow I would feel so bad for my kid. If another kid is sleeping, they're just going to have to wake their ... [snip!] ... child sitting in pee at school would definantly be the priority before another kid being a bit cranky from an interrupted nap."I know. I can't understand her thinking and when I brought it up she had no idea why she did that. Maybe she figured the school would eventually give me some clothes to change into? Idfk. But it was mean. And riding the bus home that way was even worse, I'm sure I smelled.
Quoting The Dandelion Rapist:" Relationships like that can easily be mentally draining. Abuse and neglect are abuse and neglect whether ... [snip!] ... experience for her. Not to mention she will always have me regardless. I haven't met her yet but, I will sometime this year. "
Quoting Supafly★:" I hope that's what it is. My step-siblings have a real mother too so it's like they have 2 mothers ... [snip!] ... need one now lol. The only thing I can do is be the best mother I can for my own kids. And thank the lord for my grandmother. "
Quoting Sherri + 3:" I didn't read all 3 pages of this thread so I don't know if this has been addressed, but I would be pissed ... [snip!] ... stems from my childhood. OP, I would seriously consider seeking a therapist to talk things through with. They do help wonders."They could have done something. They should have at least called my mom for me and been like wtf?
Quoting The Dandelion Rapist:" That's pretty much all you can do is learn from your parents mistakes by becoming a better mother to ... [snip!] ... grandmother back East, and she passed away back in 07. I only have one grandparent left, and that is my mom's biological dad. "
Quoting Supafly★:" I was super close to both my mom's parents. But my grandma also passed away in 2007 and my grandpa ... [snip!] ... husband so I try to make time to go see her as much as possible. I was blessed with 2 sweet good-hearted grandmothers. "
