Is this weird behaviour for a Granny?

    I know a couple of you JWD'ers are grandparents and even if you aren't - I would still like an opinion - is this odd behaviour?

    My little boy is in Grade 00 at a local school and next week tThursday morning, they are having a concert for the Grandparents. When I told my Mom in Law, she immediately pencilled it into her diary and confirmed that she would attend. When I mentioned it to my Mom, I didn't get much of a reaction either way.

    So I called her a little while ago to ask if she will be attending. She said she would have to see if she could take the time off work (she works half day - her and my dad own a business... she should have retired by now, but they dont have savings for retirement - but that's another story altogether ) She sounded very unenthusiastic. Then she asked if I was taking the morning off to attend, to which I responded that parents aren't really invited, it is specifically for the grandparents and space was limited. At this, she said no, she would probably not attend - why go if I wasn't even going to be there. And that was that...

    So - is this weird - Yay or Nay?

    I find that to be very odd behavior for a Granny. My mom has not even met all of her grandchildren because of a bunch of old farts in Brooklyn.

    Now that's not only odd, it's EFFED UP! Freakin cult!

    Lucky my kids have one Granny who dotes on them completely!

    Because of the "Freakin Cult" I have such a f'd up relationship with my mom and now my poor kids have a f'd up relationship with their Grandparents - and yet she still manages to always lay the guilt on me!

    Gosh, Princess,

    That is weird! Usually grandparents are a child's biggest cheerleaders.

    That's typical borg behaviour!!

    NOTHING could keep me from anything involving my grandkids!! I couldn't even entertain that notion!!

    Just wondering if she doesnt get on with your in-laws.

    No excuse I know but might have a bearing.

    Is this some of the love we heard about during the Watchtower Study every Sunday?

    My mom does not have any real problems with my MIL except that my MIL is not a JW. They dont really have much of a relationship either way. If they do bump into each other they are quite friendly, so no... I don't think that would be the issue.

    I just cannot understand why she wouldn't make the effort to take the morning off to see my boy's concert!
