Things my mother says that get on my nerves (vent)

1. "Well you and your sister slept well from the day I brought you home. You're not trying hard enough to get your daughter on a schedule." (my dd has acid reflux and colic, she goes to dr Fri)


2. "I didn't get any stretch marks from my pregnancies" Congratulations on winning the genetic lottery mom.


3."I weighed less after having you than before I got pregnant" Good. Good for you. I'm by no means big but I'm still a little bigger.


4."Breastfeeding is gross. You'll look terrible in a few years." Its healthiest for dd, I'm able to with no problems, and hopefully my appearance isn't the only thing I have going for me.


5. "You look so hard with dark hair." Um...I'm a natural brunette just like YOU!!! I love my mom but I wish she didn't nitpick quite so much.

my mom is dead.   I would kill to have my mother bitch at me one more day.  Also, you have beautiful hair, just ignore it.

I laughed a little reading this only because I know what you mean. My mom doesn't say a lot of that stuff to me. But I do hear A Lot from my dad about how just about everything I do is wrong. :0/

You mother passed away so she has to love every single thing her mother does and says?

It's really hard but you need to let her know how you feel. I wish i would have stood up to my mom a bit more and not let her walk all over me and put me down. 

She is not well now(Final stages of brain cancer-year 5) so there is no point in telling her I stuff i should have told her years ago. Family dynamic is so hard to change.


You look great so don't let her get you down!
