My Mom Is Annoying

I am working for a little while today and my Mom was supposed to watch my dd, I am doing a trade with my friend who is a massage therapist, I do her hair and she gives me a massage. Anywhoo, I have planned this for 2 weeks. My Mom basically forced me to let her watch our dd, and was like yes I'll do it I promise. The whole time I have been concerned she would call and cancel, because I am last on the list in the family for some reason. Well last night she called and was sick, I was glad she called, but then she said she could still watch Nora, of course I was like "Um no, I'd rather you not." She didn't "think" she was contagious, but she sounded like sh**. I got it all figured out, I am still doing my friends hair, I still get my massage, I just knew something would come up with her. The worst part is I didn't even really want her to watch our dd, because I knew this would happen. I don't completely want to suspend her baby sitting privileges, but I just can't seem to rely on her. I'm glad she told me she was sick, I just know if it wasn't that it would be something else. Advice anyone? Thanks I just needed to vent.

There is a certain level of disappoint for some of us when we realize that we are more mature and responsible then our folks. Dh is going through this right now with his mom and dad. They have not changed...dh has had more life experiences that made him realize that he can be a better parent then the ones that raised him. Sometimes these realizations suck!

Totally, I just wish that she wouldn't have made a big deal out of coming to my house and taking care of our dd. It made things more complicated in the end, now I am having to have my dh pick her up in his work truck and bring her home, blah, blah, blah...I think the worst thing for me is that I waited to have a baby and she'd given up on me, she just thought I never would, now she's too busy all the time and never sees her granddaughter because my grandma demands more attention than my baby does and she's not even in bad shape, she's just selfish....Aughhhh, I sometimes really dislike my family.

As you well know, we can not change others....only ourselves. My grandmother was a terrible mother and she is a terrible grandmother. Lucky for me, my mom was able to identify the things that were bad characteristics in my grandmother so that my mom did not continue the trend of being a bad mother to us. Each day is a learning experience. We live and if we are smart, we learn! I read a quote in a book yesterday that went something like this "Critize bad behavior, not the person". You love your mom, but right now you are not happy with some of the selfish choices that she makes.
