Maybe I'm being too sensitive but it bothers me that my Mother never asks if she can take my kids to do things. It's always like, "I want to take the kids to 'X' so I'll need your car." or "I'm taking the kids to do 'X' so can I borrow your car or what?". I'm never invited. I have to ask if I can go or if she want's it to just be her. I don't understand why she never says "Can I take the kids to do 'X'?". I'm confused by her whole "I-don't-give-a-flip-so-what" attitude. It comes across as rude to both me and my husband. I don't mind her doing things with my 3 kids without me but it depends on what they are doing because she lacks a sense of urgency when it comes to watching my 3 year old. I don't know whether to just get over it or take control of it and tell her that I'm coming. Any thoughts?
