Not What You Think...

My mother wasn't around much as a kid, liked to be with the two idiots she married rather then spend time with us. Over the years I've tried to be close to her but I just can't. I'm not over her, the pain, the fact that I just can't stand up to her. My grandmother taught me respect and I just can't fight back when it comes to her.

I understand what u feel about your my mum, same goes with me..But at least u still have your grandma with u, for me I'm alone.

i agree with @SuperMother2010.

oh yes another casualty of the respect generations **** THAT ****

I don't know that she was bad but certainly in her own world. We speak now but not too often. oh well...

aww well i am sorry she is such a bad mother :(

at least you can continue to find solace and peace with your grandma, right?

but i know i know it's not the same...

sometimes we just have to find peace with what we were given from the getgo.

and we have to deal with it best we can and not let it get in the way of our dreams and working hard.

i hope you can keep your head up and find others who will bring you up and treat you the way you deserve to be treated :)

Sez I hope so too....

As for my egg donor... when I was prego w/ my first she told me that my daughter would not be allowed to call her grandma because she was too young and that we should use first names.

She only came to the hospital for my son as he was in the NICU for a while... she seems to favor the boys in the family... my brothers are weenies because of it. Tall, strong, handsome, wimps. GGRRR!!

well, it's okay that they don;t, because they have you for a real mom! not a stand in, no matter how wonderful they were, you know? no sense in trying to change someone...i am sure your kids are fine w/o her.

My grandparents both passed away holding my hand... they, to me, WERE my real parents. I only wish my children had the same type of relationship...

You have a grandmother.Why can't your mom be like your grandmama?
