DD is the first grandchild for my parents. Her graduation is this Saturday.
My parents say they are not going because they don't like the 'big city'. This is very hurtful to my daughter. Both my sister and I have said they don't have to drive. We will be their drivers. All they need to do is get in the car, and be present for the graduation. Parents say it's too far. The drive would be less than 1 1/2 hours. I could understand and accept that if they were not planning to drive to the coast in June- a 7+ hour drive one way. Also my dad will go to this 'big city' if he needs to take his atv for service.
I know it's not really fair to compare. It still upsets me that her dad's mother, 2 brothers are coming from Kansas, NY, and Chicago for this. And yet my parents don't want to spend a half day (or less!) and 130 miles to see their granddaughter graduate from high school. I'm getting more upset and hurt each day to the point that my daily visits to them just haven't happened lately.
Any words of wisdom/advice beyond suck it up and get over it?
