My OH's mum and I have never got on completely because of the unsual situation that my OH and I have. (basically we were only friends when we conceived and only got together when I found out that I was pregnant). For this reason, she sees me as a burden to him rather than someone he wants to be with, even though my OH and I have been together for over two years now. However, I try my best not to let it get to me because at the end of the day I want her to be a part of our lives. But today, she decided that she wanted to come around for lunch. I was a little bit annoyed because wednesday is my full day that I get with Noah and also is the day that my OH has the afternoon off so we usually go and do something together and she knows this. But I thought oh what the heck she hasn't seen Noah for a while so I agreed. Now, she's very particular so I thought I'd make an effort. Noah and I went for a walk down to the shop and picked up some ingredients and then I spent the best part of two hours making chicken wraps, duck wraps and prawn wraps. I was pretty impressed with how everything turned out and was actually a little excited about her coming! When she turned up, the first thing she did was walk into the flat and say "oh it's not a very healthy envirnoment for a child" I ignored it, but I was annoyed because our flat, although not spotless is tidy. It went downhill from there, she criticised the food, which she said was "cheap, tasteless, and something that she would expect me to eat." At this point, I so nearly flipped and was very glad that my OH came home. He did stick up for me a little, but she's so lovely to him and she adores Noah so it doesn't seem like I have much of a case to him. It's just the constant digs and it makes me feel like I'm not good enough for her son. I know it sounds trivial but it just really got to me today because I'd gone to quite a bit of trouble to try and entertain her. *sigh* I'm not sure what I can do and atm I just feel totally fed up. Sorry for the long ramble, I just needed it off of my chest!
