So I am super close with my mom and I love her to death, but lately she's driving me nuts!! Every decision I make about the baby elicits a snarky or judgmental response. I"m sure that some of it is me just being hormonal and having a shorter fuse than normal but UGH!
B/c I'm single I sort-of fee like she's trying to step in to be my "partner" in this adventure. A few weeks ago she kept saying "our baby" then asked me if it bothered me and I told her "yes, it's a little weird" She since stopped that, so there's something.
I told her recently that I asked my BFF and her fiance to take the baby if something should happen to me and she just couldn't believe it! Not that she wants to raise it, but she thinks I should name my 20 year-old sister as the guardian, are you kidding?! My sister looked at her like she was nuts and my dad totally disagreed as well. Thankfully!
Then when I when I told her if it's a boy he won't be circumcised, well, she almost couldn't talk! She said "We'll discuss this later"..Umm, no we won't not really up for debate. Then she made some joke (half-serious) about how she'd take him in for it!
This week I scheduled an early gender scan and invited her to come and she just kept saying how silly it was and a waste of money. I ended up cancelling b/c I just didn't want her there with me.
I sort-of feel awful b/c I love her and need and want her support, but she's just being so overbearing. All I can say, is thank god I don't have to deal with a MIL too!
Thanks for reading my vent.
