I just had to comment on this because I understand it so well. In the past, I tried very hard to make and keep Christmas traditions for the kids. Even as they became older, I'd make them come with us to pick out the Christmas tree, which they loved when little and go to see The Nutcracker, thinking I was giving them something to remember. As older teenagers/young adults they didn't want to do these things anymore and generally, made a fuss, behaved not so nicely, etc etc.Originally Posted by Gutmutter;4119166;
Funny thing is now, we laugh so hard remembering how their behavior made me so upset, which they thought was hilarious and these things became what we fondly remember. Someday, you and she will probably remember and laugh about how she behaved. You're very wise to know not to dwell on it and move on.
