I love my mum dearly, but she drives me nuts sometimes.
I have been a single mum for 7 months now and my mum has been a bit of a rock for me. But I still feel like she dosent understand sometimes. Some things I feel I just can't dicuss with her cos she just dosen't get it. I don't live with her but see her fairly often.
My ex has been starting to take my boys every second weekend for the night. I was so depressed at first, but I'm starting to realise that my life isn't over and I want to have a bit of fun. I am a responsible mum to my boys I would never do anything to put them in danger and they get the best of everything. I love them as any ,other would.
The thing is when I tell my mum I'm going out, she says just remember your a mum now you have to get up tomorrow. It's like she thinks I'm an idiot. I know I have 2 kids and I always put them before myself, thats why I want to enjoy the time I have away from them so I can be a bit selfish for the night.
I told her I wanted to get another peircing, I get remember your a mum now. It just irritates me cos yeah I know Im a mum but I'm also me. Just because I'm a mum dosen't mean I have to give up everything I like.
She always asks me if my phone rings when I'm at her place who was that. I'm 28 next week and I know she is just worried about me, but I just wish she'd give me a bit of respect that I know what I'm doing. I think she thinks of me as her little girl still.
Another thing that bugs me is that she talks for me sometimes. If someone asks me something about the boys, she jumps in and answers before I get a chance. I don't say anything to her cos she's my mum and I respect her but it drives me nuts.
Sorry just a bit of a rant.
Does anyone elses mums do this?
