his mother is doing my head in.
it might just be the hormones n im a bit more argh than usual but ...
she used to call about twice a week at most ask when we will be in and arrange a time for her n her other disabled son to come over
now she just turns up at least twice a week and if shes not here that day you can garentee she will be on the phne for over an hour talking at you! not to you
when she is around unlike the rest of our family who make themselves at home and make themselves a drink if they want one she pesters for one then complains we havent offered her one!
she then goes on to demonstrate her new karate skills or kung foo in the living room (which is tiny about 5ft aquare) and asks me to raise my arm to show me the new block move she has learned.
she will then say something and force advice onto us such as the first thing she sed when we told her was "don't use any drugs at all in the labour"
then she has invited her son out (through me not him) to a photo sesion, and her disabled sons college leaving presentation
then sed to me when i sed oh that sound nice
"oh its just for paul we only hav 1 ticket"
"i just want a new photo of me and my sons"
then sed things like
all this attention your gettin now will soon disapear when the baby is born then you wont get any at all and the baby will get it all
well i am sorry but my family has different views on greeting a new member of the family into the family
you dont just reject the mother once the baby is born!
a whole load of waffle
but she does more
and it really irritates me
im having nightmares that the baby is born she comes to the hospital and escorts us home and then doesnt leave till the baby is grown
and then as she hates her mother with a passion, and her son dislikes her cos of all the talking i am getting terrifed that the baby will grow up to hate me!!!
can you advice on how to deal with her?
we have already discussed this together but apart from not answerin the phne n goin out every time she is round we cant come up with a reasonable solution!!!
please help or im gonna lose my head
