My son and DiL are divorced but we have provide childcare for our pre-school grandkids 2/3 days a week for the last three years. It's been a real effort but we want to help and also see it as a way of keeping close ties with the girls. Recently they 'graduated' from their kindergarten. We were told about it but assumed that the event was only for parents (as did my son). I was really upset when I discovered that my DiL's parents attended. They offer little or no assistance with day to day care of the girls and it's always us that provide help in 'emergencies' and yet they are the ones who turn up for the 'nice' events. Am I wrong to feel so aggrieved and more importantly should I say anything to Di L and risk estrangement?
