So SO and I went to TG, and of course everypone loved to see him. We were all having fun, he’s playing with the dogs and kids, shooting the shit with my Uncle. Infact all the boys were having fun, all my uncels and the kids and dogs.
Well myself and the other Matriarchs of the family, all went to the back backyard and broke out the wine and enjoyed a hookah together.
Well, my mom starts getting chatty after a drink or two. And I’m just enjoying being apart of the “big girls” time. Lol, I’ve always been regulated to the younger part of the girls until this year.
Anyway, chatting away we invariably get on to talking about our men. Just like any coffee klatch. I related a story to my aunt about SO helping mom redothe hardwoord floors in her house and how much fun the two of them had while I cooked. Homey stuff. Mom decides to interject.
“yeah at least THIS son in law likes me! Treats me like a man should treat his MIL. Helps with things, calls me to tell me how my daughter is doing and asks me if I need help with anything. He is such a good boy. We are so lucky to have him!”
“Wow thanks Mom”
“don’t call me Mom right now! We are THE MATRIARCHS Rawr!”
“Dork. But really, I’m glad you all love him so much”
“Yup not like that good for nothing boy your sister has.”
“Mom! Watch your tounge. He treats her well.”
“Yeah but have you met him yet?”
“Well me neither! He never calls they never write. He didn’t even ask me for your sisters hand!”
“Thats a thing we do? Did SO ask you?”
“Well no, but he didn’t really have too. He’s been around so long we love him. I know SO has no ill intentions to you or anyone. He’ll be a great dad too. Speaking of grandkids….”
“Mom I need more wine.”
Aunty1: “Yeah your cousins FI asked me if he could marry her. I wish your sisters fiance would just acknowledge us!”
“ok Ladies. can we move on to another topic?”
And then we started talking about renovations to all our houses. But it’s weird! My Mom has never mentioned anything about this to me until that night. No one seemed bothered by my sisters fiancee, But now they most assureadly are.
So. I feel bad for my sister but shes kind of done this to herself. Well, her FI did. but anyway, I just don’t undertsand it I guess? Should I tell my sister about the convo or just leave it alone since the Ladies were a smidge buzzed on the wine, I don’t think normally they would have said any of that.
Eta my sister and her man were not there. They live. In colorado springs and Indiana respectively.
What to do?
