Last night at dinner, SD told us she hasn't talked to her mom in at least two weeks. She's asked several times to call and we give her the phone but she's been getting BM's voice mail. BM hasn't called her back once.
So, SD called her sister and asked her sister if their mom is okay because she hasn't talked to her in two weeks. Her sister told her she's talked to their mom and gave her BM's house number, which we didn't have. SD called the house number but again, got her mom's answering machine. BM never called her back either.
As a mom, I couldn't (or wouldn't want to) go more than a couple of days without talking to my kids. I know there isn't anything that can be done about it, but it's just hard to see how it affects SD... especially when it feels like she's taking it out on me because her mom is unavailable.
