Oh, thats not good! I hope she comes through for you – is she always like this or is there something crazy going on with her life right now?


Happy birthday to you though, brideinjune12~!!!

Some parents kind of melt down when their kids graduate college, move out, get married, or any mix of those milestones. The last two decades of their lives have revolved around taking care of you, and they go into an identity crisis. They also start to dwell on their own age and mortality. Kind of like “well now that this is over, I guess my job is one and no one needs me any more.”

It’s worse for only children and youngest kids, and not all parents go through it, but it might be worth reminding your mom that you’ll still need her, for many years.

Yeah, I’m not having the experience I hoped for either. My mom is trying to help but she’s just melting down CONSTANTLY. Ugghhh.
