A rant?

I am so sick and tired of my mom expecting me to drop everything to go down to her place and have fun! I had been watching our room mate's kid for almost three weeks. We finally tell him we can no longer watch her yesterday. My mom takes my daughter down to her place and I tell her I will come down as soon as we get everything straightened out with our room mate. He needs to find someone else to watch his kid and until then we are still watching her. She gets irritated with me today because she expected me to come down today even though I told her I would CALL HER when I know for sure when I'll be able to come down. She does no listen! SO she's getting pissed off at me because I tell her I don't know when I'll be able to make it down because our room mate hasn't found someone to watch his kid yet. We can't just leave her alone like that, you know? But she's all..."We made plans" and yadda yadda yadda. I tell her, "sorry but we need to make sure this situation is taken care of first before we do anything". She gives me that petulant child attitude and we hang up.

It just bothers me because whenever either of my brothers say they're busy doing something important she doesn't get pissed at them or throws them a guilt trip, but if I say I have something important to do or it doesn't work out to where I can get together with her she gets mad and accuses me of ruining her fun! Talk about being a petulant child! And I know my brother is the culprint because he bitches soooo much whenever I can't do something. I don't even feel like going down there but I wanna get out of the house. Maybe I'll stay with a friend instead of with my mom.

  • I would stay with a friend. Your mom isn't a grownup.

  • I'm just sick and tired of being treated like shit even though I do whatever I can to do the right thing. Mother or not she needs to stop acting like a child.

  • Maybe she thought when she took your daughter home with her that you would follow very a day or two and now it's getting to be a day longer each day and she's just getting frustrated. Just a thought.
    I would have kept my daughter until I was positive the roommate had a new babysitter and then went. No promises, no misunderstandings, nothing to accuse. I like plain and simple plans.

  • I sent my daughter down there because she and his daughter were not getting along and my mom was more than happy to take her. She's acting like a petulant child because I'm ruining her fun plans. Sorry if life comes before a party.
