Ok, let me start by saying I love my mom an I am very appreciative of everything her and my grandmother have done for me....
This is the situation: my husband and I recently put a bid in on a house. our rent was due and we'll find out about the house in like a week. Instead of paying for a whole month of rent we won't use my mom said we can stay with her and my grandma.
I knew it wasn't a good idea and how right I was. My mom has never been "nice" to me, she calls me stupid, bad mom, she bad mouths my dh every chance she gets. I try to keep my head down and respect her, she is letting me stay in her house after all.
Well today, I made my daughter a nice healthy lunch, I was in the kitchen getting ready to make her dinner. My mom came home and instantly gave my 20 month old to packs of gushers and a bag of potato chips. She then told me how I starve my daughter because of how quickly she ate the junk.
I tried to explain to her that she ate it quickly because A: she doesn't get that kind of stuff from me and B: it's dinner time.
Well that wasn't good enough, I'm a shitty mom and I starve my child.... *sigh*
After the dinner thing was done and over with she told me that because I can't live by her rules that I have to pay for gas($800) I don't think I should have too, we've been here two days... We'll be here two weeks max, not enough to use up all of her gas... It would have been cheaper to stay at the apartment.
I offered to pay the electric bill and go grocery shipping for her but that's not good enough.
Help me find something that will please us both?
