Eh, that’s moms for you.  Pretty much every time I call my mom about ANYTHING, she’s like, “did you make a decision on this?” “did you make a decision on that?”  And if I’m having a bad day or something, she’ll be like, “you’ll feel better…just think, you’re getting mah–reeed!!”

So I would take it with a grain of salt ;o)

Sorry your mom was not listening to you.  She had in her mind these questions without actually listening to what you had to say.  She’s probably being asked the question by everyone that she talks to about you.  And, she sounded like she was rushed and trying to get out of the door.  Maybe try her later tonight and you’ll get that mom support that you were looking for.

When you’re on the phone with someone, it’s hard to know what they’re really doing. When my mom sounds distant on the phone, I know she’s either (a) navigating traffic – drive safely, mom!; (b) watching tv; or (c) really tired. She never tells me either, I have to guess. We live far apart so sometimes I wish she could listen more, but she really is doing the best she can…

I’m really close to my mom, but she’s super-busy and most of our calls are punctuated with, “hold on, the phone’s ringing!” or some variant. Sometimes she is busy when I really need her, or when I’ve burst into tears or something… so I sympathize.

Oh my gosh, I know how you feel!! My mom is OVER THE MOON which I am thrilled about, but she is waaaaaaay hyper active about the wedding. She could talk about it non-stop. I’m excited, but rational in the fact that I have a year and a month to have everything in order. I talk to my mom and she’s like “so we’ll book the site! then the caterer! then we can order dresses!” She’s pressuring me to try on gowns NOW, and I got engaged a month ago and she knows I have a lot of weight I want to lose. So – I know how you feel. My mom is super psyched for the wedding but sometimes you’re like “hey! what about me?! your daughter?!”. I have a double challenge because I live in LA and am planning the wedding in Northern California. Oh well! It will all work out perfectly. I know how you feel tho, peanut!!
