Really Mom!?!

Remember I told you last weekend I had to work a dance for dads to take their daughters for a Valentine's date? Well, my mom had asked if she could stay the night with us, she was passing through town. I told her sure, if she helped with the dance. Of course, she said yes and she had a great time. It really was entertaining to watch all the dads singing along to Justin Beiber.

Anyways, on Sunday, DH and I met up with her and my stepsis for lunch. We walked in and my mom was telling my stepsis about the dance. As we sat down, she looked at DH and said, "Oh DH, I hope you all have a little girl so you can take her!" In mid-sitting, I looked at her and said, "Really mom? Why in the WORLD would you say that?" The three of them went silent and she bite her lip knowing she'd said something wrong.

UGH! It's moments like these that make me hate IF even more, as if that's possible!

Sometimes, they just don't get it.

Christa said...

Oh wow. I'm glad you had the guts to say that to her in front of everyone. My mom says inappropriate stuff and I never speak up.

So sorry that happened.

like Christa, I am glad you had the guts to speak up too. I hate those moments :(

I am so sorry that happened to you and DH. I hate it when people speak without thinking.

Sometimes it is the worst with our moms- they want so badly to have grandbabies, but that is just one more person we feel like we are disappointing if we can't give them that. Ugh. So sorry you had to go through this. :( Hopefully lessons were learned.

Hope today is going good for you.

Sometimes they just don't get that it might not happen and how painful it is for us to hear those things, knowing this could end either way. I'm sorry but glad you spoke up. Hope she got the message loud and clear. Xoxoxo

*hugs* Our parents still don't realize that we really may never have another, but try to overcompensate (I think to make us feel better) by acting as though we won't.
