Thank you to everyone who read and commented or emailed about “it’s just hair” . I DO feel a little better having it off my chest and knowing I’m not completely insane. With that said… I should also say. I really do love my in-laws… they truly are wonderful people and they love us and our boys. I will forgive them and I won’t let this causing lasting problems in our relationship or the relationships with our boys. I’m not one who can just live side by side with someone, not caring either way, just writing them off as “family or in-laws or such”. I won’t “deal” with my in-laws… or have a fake relationship with them. They are family, they are my husband’s parents and they are my boys grandparents… those aren’t just names they are meaningful relationships. I want to be a real family and truly love and value each other. You always hear about in-law problems and such… I don’t want it to be like that. That is why this is such a huge issue. It hurt me, Paul, Vance… and we have to figure out how to work through this as a family who DOES love each other.
I AM still very upset and I haven’t talked to them yet… Paul and I haven’t had a chance to sit down and write something out together. But we will…. And we will confront them about this. As much as I want to just forget about it since we don’t see them very often I know we can’t. So onward we go………….
Again thanks for the support everyone… Like Aleah said, it’s like the 50’s neighborhood feel around here. J
