WTF MOTHER?!

Ok so Christmas is coming up right? So I bought my husband a PS3 (like the ORIGINAL one. The one that doesnt play blu-rays and still plays PS2 games on it) and a few games. I tell my mom about how I bought it for him. Then my husband and I buy pots and pans and a knife set because we just moved to a new state and didnt bring our mismatched pots and things like that. So I tell her so she can be excited for me.


This is the first Christmas I am not going to be with my family. I just had a baby a 3 months (today) ago and my husband and I moved at the beginning of this month. Christmas is a big thing for my family. Especially because I just had a baby and my mom is expecting - She is pissed about it but its growing on her- twins. 


My mom thinks it would be alright to tell me that I fucked up her Christmas present to my family 2 times now. She was going to get me a PS4 but I "fucked that up" because I got the OLDEST PS3 in the book for my husband. She found an AWESOME pan set she was going to get us but I "fucked that up" because i needed something to cook with...? I dont know. All I know is that If you are NOT going to get it for me PLEASE dont tell me that I FUCKED IT UP or even TELL ME ABOUT IT because all it does is hurt my feelings. 


I dont mean to sound like a spoiled brat becasue I am far from one. My family has money but they dont help my family out at all! Just needed to justify myself. 


I just needed a second to vent.

  I honestly don't think I'd want a present for someone who spoke to me like that. How in the world were you supposed to know what she was planning on getting you????

  I had been planning on buying my mother-in-law something for six months now for Christmas, and she mentioned to me that her son is getting it for her for Christmas. I didn't feel like he had 'fucked up Christmas'. I just chose something else I know she will like.

Sorry she is being like that. Maybe tell her until she stops her crap you will be taking a break from talking to her. I hope if anything it gets better.
But as for the PS3, when they first came out and non of them were backwards compatible, and they all played blu-ray. So I'm in shock over what you bought.

Right?! I am in SHOCK that my mom would say something to me like that since we dont get to be together... Thats hard enough you know? She told me that "since i fucked up all i get is a gift card" I dont even know what to say to that. I actually started to cry because that was the only thing that would come out...

This is crazy. How old is everyone in this scenario? Why does your mom talk to you like that? Good thing you moved.
