Update!

Well, I posted in another part of the forum about the wedding plans so I will try not to repeat myself too much.

The Christmas fiasco has not been forgotten by me because DS all but ruined that...

Re: Overindulged the grandkids.

Update!

Well, my DS got engaged last night. I did know this was about to happen but now I am a little surprised they are saying the tentative date is on Easter, April 1st!

Re: Overindulged the grandkids.

LOL but no I won't make the truck payment for you! Actually your advice is exactly what I'd give anyone in my situation! We all make excuses where our situation is "different" and I will admit, mine...

Re: Overindulged the grandkids.

KayKay,
Thanks for your kind words.
You said:

Re: Overindulged the grandkids.

Re: Overindulged the grandkids.

Thanks for sharing your insights Lucy and KayKay.

I'm not worried about dealing with my XH. If he calls me I will tell him to deal with DS on his own; it is that simple. My enabling has gone far...

Re: Overindulged the grandkids.

Re: Overindulged the grandkids.

They have 50/50 legal custody but she has them on school days and DS has them every weekend.

Re: Overindulged the grandkids.

Snafu,
Thanks for sharing your perspective. It makes a lot of sense. I am absolutely devastated about how this Christmas turned out and I wish I could go back and abide by my son's "rules."
