Unhappy Moooom - arg

DM has started bothering DS about his weight (he's wiry)


If she's not picking on one thing (ie: you need to....) she's picking on another

Re: Moooom - arg

If my mom said something to me about my weight, I'd be "Arrggghhh." But if she said anything to my children, I'd tell her to keep her opinion to herself.

Kids have enough pressure to look perfect.

Re: Moooom - arg

This is just venting... I was able to say no, but felt bad

When I was eating lunch, mom tried to cut a 🍉 and couldn't. She asked me to do it...and indicated she thought I would do it immediately. I was able to say can't it wait till I'm done eating. Mom paused, then said it could.

Re: Moooom - arg

Mom's not talking to me.....I told her "No" for the first time in my life.

She threatened to move out.

I told her if she wanted to move out fine, if she wanted to stay fine, it's her choice.

I just found out that at Thanksgiving she told him he had looked anorexic. 😠

My mom's whole family was either wiry or willowy!

Re: Moooom - arg

Mom's not talking to me again.

Thing is I realized that I want to make it up to her (we both weren't our best late X-mas day), however trying to "love bomb" her with new clothes is stupid.

But I already ordered them and let her know. (Via text)

I'm concerned that you bought gifts in response to the silent treatment. Does that work? And what would happen if you send them back or cancel the order?

Re: Moooom - arg

I'm getting better at telling mom "No" and sticking to it.

Her cellphone is lost/misplaced and she's in rehab. I'm currently mailing out birthday & Easter cards for her. (There is a phone in her room, but she can canjust make local calls)

Tonight, she asked me to make birthday phone calls for her. I said "no", and when she aggressively questioned why I wouldn't do it, I let her know it wasn't up for debate.

She dropped it.
