Mom . . .

I have been thinking a lot about my own daughter and it has made me think about my own mom.  I have to wonder how my mom can treat me like she does.  I know I could never do what she is doing to me to Brita.  I can’t wrap my head around a mother not caring about her kids.  I understood about her not looking for me but since I have found her she wants nothing to do with us.  I thought mothers loved their children and would want a relationship with them.  I don’t understand how she can just turn off her love for me and my brother.  How do could she just walk away when I was 8 and never come back?  Its like she has just forgotten about us and is able to pretend we don’t exist. 

When I called her on this stuff she told me I didn’t have to mean!?!?!?  Funny thing about it is that I wasn’t mean to her I was just being honest with her and telling her how I feel.  As I read through my email I guess I can see how she thought I was being rude but in the end all I was doing is saying how I felt and she didn’t understand that. As I read through her response back to me it seemed like a whole bunch of excuses.  She is always blaming it on everyone but herself.  What sucks is the fact that since she sent that last email I haven’t heard from her once. I was going to included the actual emails but now that I am thinking about it I have decided that I am going to take them out only because I am hurt and I might regret putting them in the post one day.  I know this post has rambled and probably talked about the same things over and over again but like I always say “This is my blog take it or leave it!”. 

For all you parents out their how do you forget you have 2 children????

    Parents are weird. And unfortunately they're not always followers of the whole "unconditional love" thing. My husband's mom disowned him when he started dating me. Isn't it crazy? I love my daughters and could never do the same. Just learn from her mistakes, and move on. Don't give her the honor of bringing you down. HUGS.

    I couldn't do it, sweetheart. Although I must admit that one of my grown kids (step-child that I raised since he was 3 and mom was never in the picture) has decided that we chose another person over him and he took himself out of our lives. Long, sad, complicated story. But I do know that some people are incredibly self-centered and having kids doesn't change that. They are not able to put their kids first when it interferes with their own wants and desires. I don't know your situation but some times it is a blessing when those parents walk away!

    You know what it is like with my children right now. I love them, but they are behaving so not nice towards me. Sometimes I do wonder if they feel similar to how you are feeling.
