I posted recently about the high drama my mom is causing, basically related to her living 4 hours away and MIL living nearer to us. While I understand it must be difficult for her and she wishes she were closer, she is working my last ever-loving nerve. I am trying to be patient and understanding, but she's pushing my limits.
She and my dad visited for the weekend and we celebrated my brother's birthday. I invited my IL's to come over for dinner as well. They gave my brother a card and a check. Yesterday my mom says to me, "So now I guess I have to give your SIL something for HER birthday?" Um no, they were just trying to be nice and help him out a little since he's young. "Well I can help my son. They don't need to."
Her latest baby-related nugget is that when the baby is born, DH should not go to the hospital waiting room and announce said birth or the sex of the baby until my parents arrive. She'd prefer if no one got to see the baby until she gets there. So help me, I am going to call Good Morning America first if she keeps it up.
Tomorrow's therapy appointment can't come fast enough!
