Ok, not really. It's more likely to be a redneck hit. We took DD over to DH's grandparents' house yesterday for the first time. They were so sweet and so excited to meet her. GFIL kept video recording everything. GMIL takes DD and tells her that I can leave and she'll raise her. She didn't need me. Weird. Then, she pulls out a picture album with all of the pictures and letters I've sent and the invitations to my baby shower. She shows me and said, "I have all this so when you're gone, I can tell her all about you and before she was born." I didn't realize his almost 80 year old grandma was going to outlive me... That made things a little awkward.
We go back today. We also are possibly taking DSS to see his bio mom. She's off work. However, when we called to say she could have some time with him the next few days, she told us she was busy running errands today and spending Christmas, at her house mind you, with her boyfriend, her kids, and her boyfriend's dad tomorrow. She'd try to find time to see DSS, though... She didn't even suggest us bringing DSS to her house for Christmas. We aren't about to beg her to see him. We say OK and enjoy the fact that we don't have to 'share'; I just don't get her mentality.
