My mom seems to be almost as anxious for me to be engaged as I am. The other day while we were planning our Mother/Daughter shopping trip down to the US she was all “Well we should definitely stop at Dress Barn, you’ll need at least one dress for all your engagement parties. Oh and should we make an appointment at David’s Bridal?” I had to remind her that Boyfriend or Best Friend and I are not planning anything until there’s a ring on my finger, plus we have DB here now.
Then last night while Boyfriend or Best Friend and I were at dinner my mom called and left a message on my phone “Hi, it’s just Mom. You said you were going out for dinner tonight, right? We’re just calling to let you know that we’ll be home all night, so if you need to stop by and tell us anything important after dinner, you can just pop in.”
Thanks Mom. As if waiting wasn’t hard enough already, now I have my mom sitting around waiting for the big announcement. I love my mom, but her saying stuff like this kinda bugs me…

Aww, I’m sorry about that. My mom knows I’ll be getting engaged soon as well, and at first she was like this, but then she stopped and tried to be more considerate. Have you talked to her openly about this? Does she know that she’s making it worse for you?

Oh wow. Hopefully she isn’t like that around your boyfriend and making him feel pressured.

Ahahaha! I’m laughing out of sympathy, while my mom doesn’t go quite as far as everydate night we have she’s always very suspicious when we dress up to go out. She loves to look for wedding dresses, flower girl dresses, wedding related stuff…. I guess its what I get for being the last one to get married. My poor mom takes it as personally as I do when he doesn’t do anything so I just don’t really ever say anything.
