You all know I’ve had lots going on. Finishing my Get Famous book. Taping the Yahoo Finance Interview, Working on this Blog. Creating my baby product, most importantly raising Matilda, being a wife, and the list just goes on and on and on.
My mom is visiting from TN. I couldn’t wait. For one I miss her terribly since she moved and secondly she is always such a huge help with the baby. Plus what girl doesn’t need her mom? So she was set to fly in she normally stays with me but this time she was spending the first night with my brother and his family. No biggie I’d get her in the morning and that was the plan.
Until I got the call in the morning that she may not make it for a while because she was thinking of going to the DR with my sister-in-law and my niece and nephew. Turns out my poor nephew who honestly has chronic health issues has a case of croupe.
Instantly I felt my blood starting to boil. Before you think I’m a total spoiled selfish brat let me say every time my mom comes to town it seems something is happening with my sisiter-in-law that pulls my mother from her otherwise fun visit to whatever need may exist.
I’m sure that’s not the case but that is how I feel. Also the fact that my mom was over there with my super sick nephew made me totally stressed because even though I believe in divine healing I don’t like Matilda to be forced at 9 months to be around a coughing hacking baby. Then I found out my brother actually was home and could have gone to the doctors. I thought the only reason my mom was going was to help my sister-in-law.
Needless to say I went on a small rant telling my mom this always happens and I’m sick of it. Called my husband. I actually cried which is ridiculous for a 40 bleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep year old grown woman to do. But there you have it. I did it had a fit and didn’t want the T-shirt because then even more people would find out how ridiculous I acted.
I will tell you my mom is at my brother’s again today and until tomorrow then she is coming back here and I have gotten over it. But I still just shake my head at myself sometimes wondering what is wrong with me. Business woman, TV personality ( at times) , entrepreneur and now I’ll have to included fit throwing meltdown having big baby into that list.
I don’t know why I get so bugged by the whole thing. I think my time with my mom is so valuable that I’m trying to steal every minute but I have to remember my brother loves her too and my niece and nephew need a turn with grandma in addition to Matilda.
So I ask this with a little caution but here we go- Total spoiled Brat? Or “I understand I value having my mom with me to” or something in the middle. And if you’re perfect and never have a meltdown moment let me know and I’ll send you the book on how to recover from being a “liar liar pants on fire.”
