she bought my grandma a nice birdfeeder for MDay. i overheard my grandma repeatedly saying "i told you not to get me anything" and not a single thank you. then, when my mom put the stromboli out my grandma asked her who made it and she said she did, and my grandma was like "no??" in a surprised way. it wouldnt have offended me but my mom's pretty sensitive. instead of it being a compliment as in, wow, these look so beautiful they look like they were made in a store, she took it as her saying, im surprised YOU could make something like this. then my grandma made it a point to tell me to water the flowers that my mom got me (she got my grandma a similar bouquet) because they are very dry. when they were leaving, my grandma told my mom "you overdid it as always".
most of those things wouldnt have bothered me but i know they bothered her because we talked about it after they left. i hated seeing my mom so upset on mother's day. we stayed for a long time and just talked and laughed but i know that now that we're home she's probably wallowing in all of her negative emotions.
i did all that i could to make today special for her but it sucks being snubbed by your own mom like that.
