What on earth!? She really said if he LEAVES you? What kind of person would say something so cruel, especially after you having a child!?

I’m so sorry. I don’t have golden advice but I’m thinking your mom wants to be there for you, she just never finds the right “time”. Every date she sets ends up being a broken promise because not all is right in her world right now. This could be something minor or something major. With the two hour distance, it’s hard to say what’s going on. It sounds like she has good intentions, just for some reason keeps fudging her half-handed efforts.

From your post, it sounds like this behavior isn’t new. How far does it go back, if I may ask? Do you have memories of her skipping out on you at school or such? She does come across as unintentionally selfish, almost as if she doesn’t see the damage she causes. That will be up to you to decide to bring it to her attention.

Good luck, OP!

Allyg:  She is definitely flaky and I wouldn’t make plans with her any more. Who knows if she’s drinking again or what, but obviously she has no real intention of helping you out like she claims. How disappointing. The next time she offers to help pay for something tell her that’s ok, you’ve got it covered. If she makes a fuss about not being included, tell her straight up that she had many chances and obviously didn’t want to be involved like she claimed.
