My mom is driving me crazy. I mean, she’s super helpful and I know she means well but planning this wedding with her on my heels is making my life a living you know what. I think that by the time I’m married and all this is said and done I’m going to be lucky if she’s even speaking to me anymore! I’m her only child so she’s always really babied me but now that she’s helping me plan the wedding and she’s paying for the whole thing, too, she thinks she has say over everything I do. My fiancé and I just bought a condo and we’re really excited about making it our own but she’s already made it clear what color we should paint the baseboards and what kind of couch we should get. Just the other day I was on www.electriccompaniesindallas.com and she started looking over my shoulder telling me to click this and don’t click that. She acted like she was the only person in the world who knew anything about signing us up for utilities! I know she’s only trying to help but sometimes mom can just be a bit overbearing and it’s hard to argue with her. She gets really defensive if you ask her to back off and since she’s the one who cares so much about this wedding I know it would kill her if I told her to take a step back. I know she wants the best for me and for my fiancé but at the end of the day it’s our celebration and it’s certainly our money that went into buying the condo. If she doesn’t wise up and realize that soon enough I’m probably going to have to tell her what I think of her recent actions and she’s going to be none too happy. Moms are the best – unless they’re being the worst, am I right? What can you do about it.
