Feeling like a teenager.....

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
And not in a good way!

Last night my mother called around 7:30. I was running out the door to get more tape for the boxes so I told her I would call her back.
When I got home, my phone was beeping because it was going dead so I put it on the charger, which is on the floor, and went back to packing.
Around 12:20 I noticed that my oldest sons dad hadn't called him like he normally does and went to check the messages. When I went to get the phone apparently one of the cats (or kids) had knocked it off the charger. I let it charge for about 15 mins and it started ringing.
It was my mother and boy was she . She started screaming and yelling at me about where I have been who I have been with what I have been doing. Before I could explain to her, the phone went dead. I started to charge it again and it rang again but every time I tried to answer it, it would die. This went on for 30 mins. I finally got fed up with it and unpacked 4 boxes to find my other corded phone.
I called her back and she started . By this time the kids were awake and not happy. She went off on me about how irresponsible I was, blah blah blah, and how I should have went to a pay phone and called her! After I explained to her what happened and arguing with her for 10 mins, she says " Im so glad you're moving back down here so I can keep an eye on you!" OMG how old am I? 14? NO Im almost 27 with 2 kids!
I have to admit, that's one thing Im NOT looking forward to is being under her thumb. I know she does alot for me and the boys but should that include me being under her thumb?
Sorry, you all, lol I had to vent and get this off my chest!

I think all parents have a knack of making us feel like kids again - you're not alone if that's any consolation!

I moved home to help my parents with their business. So not only is she my mom she is my boss too. Sometimes it helps to rant that way though!
I hope it gets less stressful for you!

I'm almost 37 and my mom still wants to push in sometimes when she shouldn't. When we bought our van last spring, the dealership tried to pull a nasty contract switch on us. We straightened it out and ended up getting a really good deal, but before we could do anything, my mother called and reamed the manager. I was so embarrassed that I wanted to crawl in the door when we went back in there to fix it ourselves! Fortunately, the dealership never said a word to me about my crazy, overprotective mommy!

Sounds like my mom! She is just like that. Embarrass you to no end! When I used to live closer to her last year, she would stop by ALL THE TIME! Even wanted a key!
I dont think so!

Boy do I know how you feel, I've been dodging my mother's calls this morning I've been married for 8 years and I'm 25 with two kids. I rather not talk to my parents when they are like that, I insantly go back to, like you said, a child. So I hang up and tell them if that how they are going to be then i rather not talk to them. That usually ends it one way or another. I like I said, BOY do I understand where you are coming from. Good Luck!! Ever need to talk, I'm here for you hun!!

After reading all of these posts, I'm going to drive across town and KISS my mother! I can ask my parents and they will do almost anything, to help me but, they'll never try to run my life. I treat my children the same way.
