Their Daughter Is Furious Because They Didn’t Fly Home from Their Holiday as Soon as She Went Into Labor

A couple recently found themselves arguing with their daughter after they said no to flying home from their holiday after she went into labor. They had spent a lot of money on the trip and didn’t want to waste it. Now their daughter refuses to speak to them.

They had waited a long time for the trip

The 52-year-old man and his wife had planned the trip for a while and had saved up for it for over a year. It was a dream vacation in Cancun, and they had booked and paid for the trip before their daughter had even announced that she was pregnant.

Suddenly their daughter’s boyfriend called

The couple had been on vacation for six days of a two-week booking when their daughter’s boyfriend suddenly called.

He told them that the daughter was about to give birth and that they should get on the next plane home. 

The man says,” We were aware that my daughter was about to pop, but her due date wasn’t until the end of the month.”

They couldn’t just leave

The couple told the boyfriend that leaving straightaway wasn’t possible and that he and their daughter should just stick to the birthing plan and keep them updated.

A few hours later, they got a call from their daughter. “When are you going to be on your way back? I really want you to be there. It’s taking longer than expected, and I’m scared,” she said.

The couple understood that their daughter was having a baby for the first time, and so it was natural for her to be scared. They assured her that everything would be alright but that they couldn’t just pack up and leave.

The daughter hung up on them.

The situation got worse. Hours later, in the middle of the night, they missed a call from the boyfriend. His message said, “There are complications. They are performing an emergency C-section.”

So the following day, they called immediately. Their daughter told them she was scared, and things could’ve gone terribly wrong. Then she told them she was disappointed that their Cancun trip seemed more important to them than her. 

She then hung up again.

The parents tried to call back, but the daughter wouldn’t answer.

Luckily, the baby was born healthy, and their daughter is okay. They have only seen pictures of their grandchild through Facebook because their daughter hasn’t let them see her. She has barely spoken to them since they got home.

They felt bad but it wasn’t an emergency

“We had planned to be there for our grandchild’s birth, but we couldn’t leave six days into a trip we spent a lot of money on. Even if we did, we wouldn’t make it back on time,” the man says.

Were they wrong?

The man and his wife then reached out to the Reddit community and asked for their opinion. They think their daughter is being very harsh on them, especially since they have apologized several times and feel that they couldn’t have done anything anyway, even if they had rushed back.

One user said’ “THEY MISSED A CALL BECAUSE THEY WERE BOTH SLEEPING.

Their daughter was terrified. Their son-in-law probably was too. The birth was taking a long time… And they both just fell asleep so soundly that they couldn’t hear the phone when they needed them”.
