- Wedding: September 2011
I love my mother, even though some days she can get to me. She is very ‘traditional’ and has been highly critical over some of my wedding plans. This week she is upset that I will not allow two cousins into my wedding party as a way of showing that side of the family we are not angry at them anymore for something mean they did (long story involving a family member’s house who died without a will). Last week she tried to get me to buy a new wedding dress even though the one I loved she absolutely adored in the store as well.
Now she is on my wedding favors. I was orginally going to not have any. She has decided I will and she did offer to pay. However I did not like her idea.
This week, I was having a hard time. I am upset over my job. She rememberd I liked a dressd I saw in the store and gave me ehr credit card to buy it. It then made me remember how selfless she has been to me and how she has been the main person there for me finanacially since I was laid off in March 2010. Yeah, she can fuss at me over silly stuff, but at the end of the day I am her first daugher getting married and she is overly excited about out wedding.
Compromise with our overbearing mothers can happen…in most cases LOL
