How do you deal with a jealous mother?
Ok, I think my Mum gets jealous of things sometimes. Do any of you all have this problem??? I have the greatest Mum in the world, but we don't have that much in common. I'm a girly girl, and she is definitely not. Our tastes in everything are complete opposites. I mentioned that if LC gets the house that his Mum was going to give us her dining room table; well, because, that means she gets something NEW=) We all love excuses to get new pretties, right?? LC's mum is like myself. She LOVES to shop!!! My Mum's response was [insert snippy voice here] "Well, I'm sorry we probably won't be able to help you much at all." Um, okay, thanks, I guess. Times are hard. The economy sucks. I wasn't expecting anything from anyone. I told her I was just grateful that we would have a dining room table to eat on since we don't have one, and that I wasn't implying anything towards her. Geez. She responded with [again insert snippy voice here], "It's just things you say sometimes." Okay, sorry. I'm glad that if we do get this house *which we have NOT yet* that my guests and I would not have to eat dinner on the dining room floor. I have a small square table that seats two since I was in freakin' undergrad. Not really much of a table to have people over to eat with ya know. I was just thankful that someone was giving us something. How do you all balance/handle these situations?
