Me again. Besides my son's outburst yesterday when my daughter kept asking him to play his turn on the wii, and him stomping on the remote, then slamming doors and telling me he wanted to kick in my face twice, than said he was kidding. I have a question.I know kids dont always think to wish someone a happy birthday, but when nicely reminded of their great-grandafathers birthdays today, they refused to call him or go to his house. Only when my dad said they would be grounded, did the call him. They know my grandfather pays the bills, buys them things, pays for anything need and their school that they love so much. I know its hard to kids any child to wish an adult happy birthday, but if it doesnt have to do with my kids, they seem not to care at this point. So is this greed? They use to get excited and made a calander, cards etc ,now they say" yayaya just leave me alone". My grandfather is no angel, but has done alot for them. He was crushed tonight. How can I teach them not to be this way? I tell them " how woould it make you feel if no one visted you or wished you a happy birthday" they dont even reply when I say that. Uggh. Lots of fun huh? Oh, my daughter remmebered her dads birthday, and thought of emailing him. I said" Ok, go ahead,I wont stop you" You have a kind heart even though he does not wish you a happy birthday or marry xmas,or when he tells me to do it" So, she didnt write him. I know, I shouldnt have said that. Im just so tired of doing everything for them, when their dad rarely cares, and they love him,look up to him, and get excited overhim. Sorry,just venting as usual. I was trying to correct my spelling and wording here, and it will not let me! I dont know why not?
