SC - It was a sugar coated disaster. Matt came to me so many times, and I wish I had listened. It bothers me now because my daughter has embraced her and just like tonight's recital, she did not show up. I could tell my daughter was disappointed. That kind of stuff rubs me wrong.
I think Matt tolerated it. He never experienced compersion. She was not even in his peripheral. He knew she existed but had limited contact until last year. Years and years of no friendship. He spoke if he saw her, but going out of the way to acknowledge her? That never happened. She honestly was not part of his life until 2012. She was around but that was where it ended. What a mess.
