My Mom is Ticking Me Off!
Posted 06 March 2008 - 01:47 PM
For example, one of my best friends is going to throw me a shower. It's going to be in LA, in June. I'm flying in from NY. My mom is in Seattle, so I get that it's not totally convenient, but its a 2.5 hour flight. When my friend called to ask what a good weekend would be, my mom told her she wasn't sure she was interested in attending!!!! It's not like I'm having 4 showers or something. This is it!
And yesterday, I sent my sister, sister-in-law and my mom some photos of shirts I was thinking of for my nephews and dresses for my nieces. I'm not having a bridal party, but this way, they will all feel like they are a special part because they all get matching clothes. And my mom responds that she thinks it's silly to have them match and I'm sounding like my stepmother (who dresses all the girl grandkids alike at Christmas). I mean JESUS! It's not about being all matchy-matchy, it's about making them feel like they are special and a special part of my wedding despite the fact that I don't have bridesmaids and flower girls.
It just all ticks me off. Grrrrrr! Thanks for letting me vent.
Happily married since 2008

Have you tried talking to her about her melancholy (sp?) attitude? Maybe there is something bothering her.
I hope it all works out.
