My oldest is 30, married and has kids. He (they) never tell me anything. I called to find out if they would like hubby and me to visit of the first weekend of April so they can go out for the anniversary (they are military, only 3 hours away right now) and I found out my son's leg is worse (from a softball injury last fall) and he is going to see a neurologist because he has lost a lot of strength in his leg. NOW WHY WOULDN'T THEY MENTION THAT? I do talk to DIL often and If I don't ask questions, I know nothing! She is a great girl, I'm not bashing her at all, she is a great mom and wife. I just don't get why they don't share things. This isn't the first time and I know it won't be the last!
My other son just bought a house, he moved into it on Friday. I left work early and stopped at the grocery store and bought a few things and I went to put them in the fridge and got yelled at..... "don't put those in there, I'll do they way I want too" ( I wanted to scream), instead I just walked away and I stopped helping completely. Then on Sat morning he calls me at 8:00 and asks to me to go shopping with him because he still needs lamps and a few other things. OK, sure...I'll get my shower now, you can drive over here and we will take my car since it's a little bigger. I sat here till 2:00 when my hubby finally called him to see if he was coming and he said "NO, a friend is stopping by later. DON'T YA THINK MAYBE YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT ME KNOW??
I didn't grow up with boys, and I know even I have to tell my husband to call his mom or dad for certain things or mention that maybe he should stop by and just say hi...
My boys are breaking my heart.... I know I shouldn't let it bother me but it does. I wish I could make it stop bothering me so much.
My daughter is nothing like that. Although mom and daughter relationships are different.
I texted Joel last night to see if would be ok to stop by and drop a few things off that he had forgotten and the pampered chef items I got him came. He never texted back and I haven't heard from him all day.
I have a temper, most of the time my mouth operates faster than my brain so I have to REALLY bite my tongue so I don't make things worse. It's just so hard sometimes and MY TONGUE HURTS...LOL l
