#1: Mom Trouble
Does anyone else have mom trouble? Seriously my mother seems to think that by telling me about everyone under the sun I might have ever known who is either a)about to get engaged b) getting married or c) having a kid - it's going to magically cause me to run out, find the man of my dreams and miraculously have babies like yesterday. Half of the people she tells me about I couldn't give a flying fig about, I really don't care that they're pregnant, or they're shopping for wedding dresses, good for them! She lets me know last night that my cousin's mother doesn't call her anymore to talk about her grandkids because "she knows I want some". Boo freaking hoo woman. Even if I DID get married, it's, oh I don't know, MY body and MY life and I'll have kids when I'm damn good and ready, not whenever SHE thinks I should. Honestly all her nagging and little comments make me want to wait that much longer, honestly. I don't like being told what to do, or what other people think I should do, I usually do the opposite. And the woman who always told me to "never settle", "don't date anyone you wouldn't marry", etc is now saying I'm "too picky" and pretty much saying I should settle. (She even pushed the drug dealer ******* ex on me back when we were dating). I just want to tell her "Guess what woman, this has nothing to do with you. It's not all about whether you get to have grandkids or not". I honestly thought about lying and saying I got knocked up because I knew how much she wanted to have grandkids, but thought that might be a little harsh. Does anyone else's mother do this? I'm going to live my own life and I'm not going to settle and things will happen when they are supposed to. UGH!!!! Sorry to vent there but she's really pissing me off!
