I’ve said it so many times on here. STOP TELLING HER THINGS!

Tell her as little as possible. Everything should be on a need to know basis. When I started doing that with my Mother it changed everything.

OP: The phrase “I want you to be suprised on the day of the wedding” will get you very far in maintaining sanity.

I feel your pain, truly I do! Read my first rant about my mom. http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/mob-ruins-christmas-help

If anything it will give you a little chuckle! 🙂

Honestly, I don’t agree with the “don’t tell her anything” that really does make it worse. Instead, tell her LIMITED things and your absolutely right, give her TASKS! Make her feel useful.

I can’t say all the problems are solved with my mom because I honestly haven’t found the ability to forgive her yet for Christmas, but when I give her “tasks” she feels useful.

Recently I asked her to come to the cake tasting. She said, “I hate cake” (which is not true) I forced her to go, and it was a good time. Don’t take no for an answer and keep including her. If anything at the end of the experience when she says “you didn’t want me apart of this anyway” you can say, “I tried to include you every step of the way!”Oh sweet vengeance! 🙂

Anyway, lastly, about the talking to other family members. Best tactic, stay quiet and let her rant and rave. The other people in the family KNOW she’s the one being off her rocker. Don’t do anything that would make them suspect otherwise. Doing counter ranting and raving of your own won’t help you win at all.

Hope that helps.. and you are not alone!
