Well, see there — you didn’t buy them a car so they’re not going to let you have a grand baby.

Miserable and selfish brats. This age group (my kids, too) continues to baffle me. The experts told us to be careful and not to damage their self esteem by letting them know they’re not the center of the universe. So we didn’t and now they think they are.

Then they repeatedly have major crisis’ when the universe starts showing them the whole world wasn’t designed just for them.

I’m so sorry you’re not seeing your grandchild. I hope that changes someday.
