My mom just called me happily saying she'd bought my son 6 new shirts. Sounds great right?
Wrong, she bought them with my credit card- that I let her use for emergencies because she doesn't have a job.
I have a wedding I'm paying for with my fiance in two months. My cat ate a sewing needle two weeks ago and cost us $900 to have it removed. I'm broke! I don't work anymore other than helping my fiance with his business. I homeschool my son and work from home without a paycheck of my own.
She knows all of this! Why did she think I wanted her to do that? The price of the shirts is the normal price I pay for them, I didn't get to pick them out, she bought too many of them and he already has a closet full of clothes.
She's always buying him toys too, from dollar stores and goodwill and such. His room is overflowing. I feel like I can never take him toy shopping myself because he always has too many toys. It's something I really enjoy doing but haven't been able to! Not to mention I've been paying for that crap. She owes me like 200 dollars.
