Its time to move on

So this past year my husband took a job in South Florida so we could be closer to my family. We thought since  we just had our son it would be nice for them to be in his life more often. You would think that us uprooting our family to come be closer with the entire family would show them how much this means to us right? They knew this would be for only a year and that I was going to be a stay at home mom, so my schedule was/is pretty flexible. How many times do you think they came down to visit me? How many times do you think my mom ,my sons Nana came to sleep over? How many times do you think one of my family members came over to watch my son so I could go have an adult night out? Am I bitter? why yes... Am I disappointed? why yes... Am I surprised? NO not at all...

  1. We moved closer to our family too, my dad has been to our house a handful of times and expects us to go to him all the time. The rest of the family hardly ever visits either....families can be annoying :(

  7. Dora I would love to live close to you!! I could take care of your adorable baby all the weekends to let you have Adult Nights each week!

    I'm so involved in my grandson's life and help his parents in every way I can. Love going to sleep over and having them here too.

    Hugs and Kisses for both

  8. I would LOVE to hang out! Someday maybe we'll connect somewhere other than HMC and Etsy:P I know from personal experience that family is sometimes a 2 edged sword.

  9. Crap (i changed that from you know what) Dora! Your family is as dysfunctional as mine! I would give anything to be closer to some of my family...truth is they are and maybe I am....WEIRD! Not all but some! I seriously wish I could hang out with you and see what your life is like! I consider you one of my friends....i know I'm weird, never met you....all that.....you are the kind of person I would like to be! You are the kind of person I raised my daughter to be and my son. Be who you are....All that being said....Family isn't always 'ALL THAT'! I heart you!

    1. We should all meet somewhere and have an Etsy party. We each bring an item from our shop to play round robin with while drinking cocktails;). A business expense conference;)

  11. I'm sorry Dora. My mother lives 10 minutes away and has never met my children. Her choice. I know we are better off...she is a very toxic person. But it still bothers me.
    At least we have good examples of what NOT to do;)
