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.

Re: Moooom - arg

I told her I wasn't going with her to meet with my older sister (+ her daughter & granddaughter)

DH, wonderful man that he is, is driving her.

Re: Moooom - arg

Currently DM is cutting off her nose to spite her face.

She DOES NOT want me to do the things I normally do: her laundry, lifting heavy things for her, etc.

She refuses to talk to me unless it's yes/no answers or "I can't tell you anything or you'll say I'm mean"

Re: Moooom - arg

Well, you know that most of that is about trying to make you change your mind.

Let her do her own laundry, and be as independent as she can be. Eventually she'll have to let you help her.

In the meantime, you can ignore the silent treatment, tell her it's hurtful and makes the living arrangement unpleasant, or just shake your head at her and walk away. Whichever of those things work best for you.

Good luck! Moms are difficult.

Re: Moooom - arg

I've dropped the rope & am detached.

I don't have a need to try to fix things.

I'm not even hiding in my room or crying. I'm just like whatever.
