Living on campus in a dorm for ONE year taught me many valuable lessons. I honestly felt like if I could get through that, I could get through anything. My roommate was a rich kid who got anything she wanted and she and her group drank and partied ALL the time, except for the night before her court case when her dad was in town. It would be funny if it wasn't so sad. I had other friends who liked to study a lot like I did. The next year, we got an apt together. That was heaven!
Change of subject.
Can any of you think of a reason that a grandmother would not show any interest in her only grandchild? The child is precious and only 4 years old. The child is likely going to grow up and not know who her grandmother is. I'm trying to wrap my brain around it. There isn't any kind of violence, drug abuse, etc. that would keep the grandmother away. The adult child who is the parent of the grandchild is on speaking terms with the grandmother and there are no big arguments that have taken place. She lives only a few miles from the child.
No one seems to understand why grandmother just shows no interest in seeing the precious child. No phone calls, visits, cards, gifts, visits, etc. Never even calls to see how she is doing. I just can't understand. It's so sad to grow up without being close to your granny. So sad.
