So, I made the mistake of calling them to tell them happy 50th. Before the call was over, mom was giving me the third degree on how we shouldn't have had our kid [of course, no mention of GP] & the expectations are never ending. Obviously there is more to the story...I give up...

Thanks for letting me vent...
I'm still upset from the whole thing & that was 6 hours ago. Of course hubby has no idea...
That's really crappy, Wile. I hope that everything gets straighten out with your family. What would posess her to say that about your kid since you & your family aren't your brother?

Huh?

Sounds like your parents put the fun in dysfunctional.

Oh sweetie, I'm so sorry

From some of the stuff you have written, it sounds like such a toxic relationship....I think you need to take a break for awhile...
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

But what did she mean anyway? Why shouldn't you have had your kid?
I'm sorry Wile! That's waaay out of line to tell you you shouldn't have had your little one.

Obviously we don't know the details, but sorry she made such a messed up comment.

I'm so sorry you had such a sad and stressful conversation.
It hurt so badly when my family was disappointed every time I announced each pregnancy, I cannot imagine horrible it feels to hear my parents tell me that.

Thanks everyone.
I talked to hubby tonite. Thankfully, he's very supportive...taken aback, but supportive..oy..what a cluster.
I never said one thing about GP...I would have just added fuel to the fire..very hard for me, indeed. And since he's conveniently not around right now, I'm the punching bag, as usual.
This whole situation has taken such a toll on everyone.
Mom doesn't agree w/ what I do in my fam, especially when it comes to my kid & so she thinks she can tell me what I should do. Of course, she is never wrong...I digress.. However, I fire back, which makes it hard...i.e., church stuff..boy could I go on...
Thanks for letting me vent...

{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}} to you. I'm sorry your Mom said that to you.
I am so sorry that you have to deal with this.
I thought mine was bad, but yours gets the ***** award. (((HUGS)))
From Michael Berg:

Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
Mom doesn't agree w/ what I do in my fam, especially when it comes to my kid & so she thinks she can tell me what I should do.

But that doesn't answer the question of why she thinks you ought not to have had your child. Lots of grandparents think we don't raise the grandkids right, but to say that you shouldn't have "HAD" the child is a bit much. Why would she say that?


I'm sorry that she said that. It was waaay out of line.

Well, my mother would hear my potty mouth like never before if she ever said that about my daughter.
