  • I don't think so. Just a little fight. Just don't let it linger too long.

  • Call her and invite her to a nice lunch. Don't bring up the matter, just enjoy. :)

  • I say let it roll of the shoulder. Some people become obsessed with what other people do and their situation. They dwell on it like they can change it. Old people are like that. IDK Y

  • Well if your Mom is like my Mom once she gets hers panties in a knot it takes a while for her to be okay again. In the meantime..I leave her alone unless I feel like I need to apolgize. If that is the case I find a time I know she isn't Sunday mornings..and call and leave a message saying "I'm sorry I was short with you" ya, bye. That way she can't get it all started again and I apologized w/o being sermonized on what a did wrong.

  • To all you moms that posted such wonderful and kind answers..Thank you very much.You will find it humorous that when I saw Mom on Friday..she was all too ready to sit quietly and listen to full details of my baby sitting adventure and the girls trip to the coast..Not a peep from her!! I think she realized when she stormed out mad..she missed out on all the details..AND she wants to know everything going on!!! ROFLMBO
