I Can't Stand Her Granddaughter

I love my best friend.  I will love her forever.  Nothing will ever come between us, but I can't stand her granddaughter!  She raised her daughter as a sacred cow, and now she is raising her daughter the same way.  It's killing me.  Whenever her mother and I were in a conversation, she would come up with some excuse about why she needed to interrupt.  "Mom, I'm having a growing pain right here." and she would point to her shin, elbow, whatever.  Whenever her mom wanted to go out on a date or to lunch with me, she would pitch a fit, so my friend wouldn't go.  grrrrr.  My Conny would always say, "She is the only child I will ever be able to have."  Yeah well, I was in the same boat, but I treated my daughter like a child.

Well now her daughter is raising her daughter the same way.  She even calls her mini-me.  We stopped by her house yesterday and her granddaughter was there.  My friend has suffered a traumatic event and yesterday was her birthday.  When my friend asked her gd to go into another room so we could talk she started her passive aggressive act.  Okay so this little girl is a little more devious than her mom was.  But I just can't stand to be around her. 

So there is my confessions and my vent. Whew.

The "'my Conny" just shows how possessive you are over your friend. Daughter and granddaughter come before you, dear

I hate when people let children stay and be in on adult conversations. Its like they are too afraid to tell them "we are talking...you're being rude by interrupting...go play...".  My sister always did this with her kids and it drove me nuts.

People treat me like I just backhanded my kid when I tell DD that she is being rude and interrupting. "It's okay..." Hell no, it's not. The world does not revolve around anyone, my daughter included. She can wait or interrupt politely.
