Update- So, this post really hit me hard. I’ve never considered myself a mean or a bad person. In fact, I’m generally a pretty kind I’m not step mother I’m the mother that stepped up shirt. It made me do some soul searching today regarding why it bothers me so much that Mary would be called my daughter’s grandma. It’s true that Mary has never been anything but pleasant to me, but, that’s all it ever has been- superficial pleasantries. Mary never tried to be anything more than that and it always felt like I was at a stranger’s house when I stayed with my dad as a kid. She never made any effort to bond with me or my sister. I think a part of me feels like she doesn’t deserve to be considered a grandma since she never cared enough to try to be a mom to me. I do think maybe I’m projecting my own resentment towards Mary onto this. I still don’t think I’m comfortable with Mary being called grandma, but I will consider asking Mary if she wants a different name (like Gigi or something). Thanks to those of you who took the time to consider that there were probably more feelings going on under the surface and had real suggestions for me.
