Tell Me About It

Dear Carolyn: My son and his family recently moved back to our area. I feel I’ve missed so many milestones, though I did make the effort to visit them every month or so.

Once the kids started school, I joined the PTA. I so enjoyed my time as PTA president when my sons were small, and thought I could get to know the parents of my grandchildren’s friends. When I announced this, my daughter-in-law started to cry and said, “We never should have moved back.” My son gathered up the kids and left, and we haven’t spoken since.

I don’t understand what happened, though I have always had a frosty relationship with my daughter-in-law. She is not my favorite person. I did not approve of my son marrying her, and found her immature.
