I need some unbias advice. My gorgeous son is 14 months old, and my partner's mother has seen her grandson once since he was born (and told me I was not a good mother because my son was babbling away whilst she was talking), she lives an hour away, (has a new model car, so she is able to visit!) she wouldn't come when my son was born, nor his Christening, and it was a fight for her to make a bit of effort for Xmas, his birthday came and went and she was only concerned about when my partner would be taking her Easter pressies over to her. I have been over there a couple of times but when I would get there, she had gone to work (knowing that we were coming) or rushed out the door saying she had to see her other grandkids who live around the corner from her. When expressing my frustration and anger with my partner all he could say was that I need to be less selfish and more understanding that my son can't be the centre of attention all the time. I would love for them to be involved in his life but I am at the point of just thinking that my son has learnt to love without them and is adored by my family that he shouldn't be subjected to being second place to anyone. Don't get me wrong they will always be welcome in his life but with working part time, studying part time and raising my son with little emotional and no financial support from my partner, I have little spare time and with any time I do get I want to be spending it with my son.
Am I being unreasonable?????
