Sorry you’re having to deal with all that. I can’t say that I have had this experience with my mom personally but she’s had it with her mom and I’ve had it with my grandma. Not the part about our husbands not living up to her standards but just not being supportive in general. A few months ago I drove an hour to visit my grandma and she didn’t even say hi when I walked in the door. Instead all she said was that my hair looked stringy and that the shirt I was wearing didn’t look good on me. Oh, she also didn’t come to my college graduation because her toe hurt. Yes, that really was her excuse. Over the years I’ve learned to just not really mention things about my life. I go see her and love her because she is my grandma and the only grandparent I have left. I find other things to talk about. I let her talk about her life and her interests and talk about unimportant things like the weather. It stinks sometimes but it’s better than getting down in the dumps after every conversation. Good luck and do what makes you happy and is best for you and your child.

hmm I think she is probably both proud of you and has high expectations. she’ll come around, hopefully, but in the meantime keep doing what you are doing. Kill her with kindness. Good luck!
