I am going to delete my mother

I am going to delete my mother off of my facebook.

I made a joke about how I wouldn't get married unless I had a nice wedding. I feel that my wedding should be special, since so many first time events of mine were robbed from me at a young age. I just want one thing special, I don't care about the rest. (The only thing included in the status was the first sentence of this.)

My mom leaves a comment saying "Heather, a nice, big, fancy wedding isn't appropriate if you already have kids. That's how I was raised!"

Kinda hurt my feelings that she doesn't think I'm worthy of a nice wedding with a dress, church, and all that jazz. 

I'm just done with her.

ETA: It bugs me simply because she was pregnant with me and showing when she got married, so she is hypocritical... that's all I'm saying here. She got a wedding, why shouldn't I deserve one too?

I have my mother deleted and blocked. She lives with me but doesn't know how to be mature so I deal with her only in private.

Lol i would just say something along the lines of being happy that we are all entitled to our own opinions and that you are allowrd to feel differently.

Quoting SoLuvlei:

I have my mother deleted and blocked. She lives with me but doesn't know how to be mature so I deal with her only in private.

It's almost like she is jealous, or trying to compete.

You are going to be done with her over that? Wow, my mother barely ever talks to me, will not make an effort to call, has never made an effort to meet my kids, sends a card once every few years for my birthday, and yet I have tried for years to keep a relationship with her. I don't want to ever regret not trying.
How fickle some people can be...

She didn't say you weren't worthy. Were you expecting her to pay for it? If not, who cares what she thinks?

My mom can barely figure out how to use email so THANK GOD she can't be on facebook. 

She's only about to be 51.
