A question for mothers of grown children: Don't you want to see your child do well in life? Isn't that the biggest and BEST part of being a parent? My MIL is on a rampage b/c my DH and I are buying a house. She told my DH tonight that he is acting like he is "better" than everyone (meaning her and his sister) b/c we are excited about our first home purchase. We aren't even buying a NICE house - it is a serious fixer and isn't huge or anything, just a nice 3 bd family home. We showed her some pics of it, but we've been pretty careful not to rub it in her face, since she lives in a not-so-nice home. But we are EXCITED. There's nothing wrong with being excited, is there? She told him, "You come from humble beginnings - you should carry that with you,". To me that reads, "I'm poor and unhappy, so you should be, too,". WTH? She's making us feel BAD for having worked hard to buy our first home! Would YOU do that?
