Last post to clarify...and for the obvious hater to STFU. I came into their lives when she was six. She’s 43. When I married their father I moved into the home that she was raised in and not once did they (nor were they expected to) knock to come in. She called me ‘MamaC’ until she was 17. She and her brother have bought me cards for Mother’s Day, birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas since they were old enough to buy them. SHE quit everything when her mother died three years ago. We had what I thought was a good relationship, I sent her a plant the day after the funeral (because I’d lost my own mom five years earlier and knew the day after the funeral is tough), I’ve been her sounding board when she decided she hated her step dad after she died, and I’ve shown her nothing but compassion. I was and am upset at how she treats me, and I’ve chosen to cut her out of my life. If we don’t communicate I won’t continue to be disappointed.
