Relationships of all kinds can be extremely complicated. One dad is learning this the hard way. He has accepted the fact that his mother doesn’t have to act like a traditional grandmother because she hasn’t really shown a huge interest in her grandkids anyway. But his wife is mad and thinks otherwise, and she told the grandmother exactly how she feels. Now the man is stuck between his wife and his mother, wondering what to do.
The man wrote about the problem on Reddit, where he began by explaining that his mom wasn’t a super-great mom, either.
“My mom wasn’t the greatest mom. She is very awkward around kids and my dad had a career which required her to do the whole socialite thing. We were left with the nanny a lot and she wasn’t that maternal,” he explained. “As kids we worshiped our dad (who wasn’t home either) and were kind of [expletive] to her. I feel bad because that was probably some internalized sexism because we never asked where he was. She would try to bribe us to love her, but we were just [expletive] kids and thought it was funny to take the gifts and then run off.”
