I’ve just had a FaceTime from my GD who is in first year at University. She isn’t very good at keeping in touch so it was a lovely surprise.
It’s been a difficult year for 1st year students and she’s been home for a lot of lockdown. She has lived with her dad for the last 7 years and doesn’t really get on with her mum (my DD) .They are chalk and cheese - couldn’t be more different. Her mum loves her to bits and tries so hard with her . She phones and messages her but rarely gets a reply.
During our FaceTime GD told me she’d been in touch with her auntie, ( my DIL) and has been invited to stay with her for a while..GD also gets on very well with her other auntie (her dads sister);. She seems to be looking for ‘another mum’.
My DD will be heartbroken when she hears this.
I won’t be the one to tell her.
Any thoughts or advice would be welcome.
