Maybe she needs you to spell this out for her! Just ask her if she’s thought through the timing?

That’s a shame. 🙁

Still, I’d put it down to her spaciness or whatever you call it. It’s not about not wanting to spend time with you.

It could be she picked those flight times due to price. I know sometimes a morning flight is a couple hundred dollars more than a midday one, or going home a day earlier or later can save you big amounts of money.

@MsGinkgo:  I’m confused… If she’s not leaving until Monday at 4pm, couldn’t she visit her dad Sunday or early Monday morning?  And then still have all day Friday to help with wedding stuff?  I guess I don’t see the conflict?  Maybe I misread.

@MsGinkgo:  Maybe offer to pay the change fee on her ticket so she can come earlier? It’s usually not that much – although it depends on the airline.

@MsGinkgo:  Ah, that makes more sense.  Yeah she probably honestly didn’t realize how much help you need in the days leading up to the wedding.  That is a bummer!  But at least she’ll be there for 4-5 days!

that sucks, sometimes moms don’t really get that we want them even though we’re grown adults, getting married, etc. At least you will have her on Friday – hopefully she can wait until Sunday after the brunch to go visit her dad?
