Re: Moooom - arg

I'm continuing to do normal things....if I go to the store I pick up some low sodium chips for her.

I talk to her about as much as normal....

I've recently realized that she's exhibiting the same behavior as my older sister, you defie her and there's hell to pay.

I'm to the point "play _____ games, win witch prizes".

I'm sorry, snafu. Sadly, the bad behaviors get worse as they get older.

Re: Moooom - arg

I don't know 💯 if the fact I've not taken the bait (so to speak) is the reason mom (No D about it) didn't talk to DS at all this evening. The only time she speaks is if she'd look stupid for not answering, and then she speaks in a soft/feeble voice. she also refused to answer the house phone (I was busy) until I looked and let her know it was for her. She was so busy playing games, the answering machine picked up.

I'm still doing my normal thing getting things I think she'll like or something different to try (korean pears as anyone?) I also buy a box card set every time they are offered for sale at school.

Update:

Mom is talking to me again....started the day the trip was supposed to happen.

I need to speak with her about expectations ( I am not responsible for her happiness)

Re: Moooom - arg

I never did have a conversation with Mom

However she tried to get me to meet with my older sister again, I told her no and she accepted it.

This is good. Do you think she spoke with your older sister?

Not a clue, but mom really needs to stop meddling.

Re: Moooom - arg

I had an epiphany today

Mom has expected me to "rescue" her from my sister(s) for years

...and I'm removing myself from that position (passive enabler)
