I have 3 women in the family - all extremely feisty, highly strung and very sensitive and I am in the middle. There's always some little niggle, which is always brushed over. But last week, a quite harmless banter on our whatsapp family group chat, turned into a fairly nasty row. My daughter commented about one of the little ones who is sure to go far because he has an ambitious mum or something like that- d.i.l. got offended, went on her high horse - I told my daughter to be extra careful when bantering because not everyone gets her jokes. Then my daughter accused me of favouring d.i.l. and there's now a Cold War. And she left the family group....not talking to me either.
Easter is almost here, the two sons do their own thing with their young families. Usually my daughter (she is divorced, like me) and her teenage kids come to me for Easter Lunch but nothing has been mentioned. The kids will probably go to their other grandparents. My daughter and I will be sulking alone in our respective houses. Oh I wish I could just disappear 😫😫😫😫😫😫😫- I'm sure it will sort itself out but I just wanted to offload on here. Thanks for listening xx
