to the grandparents last night!!

I was online and they initiated a Skype call. I answered and said I will get the kids and they said they wanted to talk to hubby and I actually. They brought up the kids going to stay with them this summer. They were hoping for at least a month. We narrowed down two weeks the kids could stay there. We stated our conditions about no being unsupervised with bm and no contact with her bf whatsoever. We told them we were upset about things that were seen last summer and that they were told to hide things from us. Grandparents looked a little embarrassed about that. Grandma tried to argue the unsupervised with bm part and we said that was non-negotiable because we don't trust her decisions. Grandpa spoke up then and said not a problem, they agree to that. He said he also doesn't agree with his daughters decisions. Grandma looked a little unhappy about that. I am sure she is trying to deal with her daughters screw ups by pretending they aren't happening. Grandpa is more blunt and honest and realistic.

So I guess it was a pretty good conversation. The kids are going to visit them towards the end of their summer vacation.

Thats good!

We had a similar situation happen. When BM was court ordered to be supervised at all times by her mother when she had O, her mother would let them "Just run to target or the mall" together. I think it's just parent guilt. They feel bad that their kid is having such a rough time so they try to help them when in reality what they NEED is tough love.

Glad you guys were able to have a civil convo. I'm sure the kiddos will enjoy their time with their grandparents.
