I have a problem with my 25 year old daughter. She and her husband have a two year old son, my grandson. They also have 4 dogs, and this is the problem.
They have recently been away on holiday for 14 nights, did not my grandson. I took time off my work to care for my grandson and for the first week she had someone else looking after her dogs, after leaving for the airport she text to say this person could not watch the dogs for the second week and she had left a key for me and my other half to do so.
We both work full time, my other half has a heart condition.
I suggested kennels, can’t afford it, suggested other grandparents look after dogs, they were going away so couldnt.
We always seem to get left with looking after the dogs when they go away, I have said numerous times we are not happy to do this, and won’t do it again.
Upshot was a text saying that if we don’t watch the dogs we don’t see grandson. We looked after the dogs.
They have returned from holiday and there has been no contact at all , have not seen grandson and her dad did not get a Father’s Day card or present.
Feel like this is blackmail..what do others think...
Irritating personality traits haven't softened - do friendships change?
Needed but feeling left out - do others feel the same?
Where were you on this day? - moon landing
