please dont judge me here as I love My mum to bits but..... my mums mum wasnt very maternal and didnt show mum much love, my mum has a heart of gold, is very generous but isnt a 'hands on affectionate mum'. she wouldnt just offer to come over and cook for me firstly she hates cooking. we went there yesterday and a simple quiche salad ended up me cooking it. if she comes over she gets all nervous doing anything in the house as she thinks she wont do it how i want it. she wouldnt offer to come over and hoover or clean my windows. i am very independant i think becuase of this, my dad passed away 5 years ago he did so much for me, i am much more like him mum said when baby arrives she will come over and look after baby while i do the chores, i said no mum, i need to be the mum and i will need help with stuff in house she lives 45 mins away by train, takes ages to get ready so if i had to call her in an emergency she wouldnt be here for hours. also since being pregnant, she said its taking her time to get used to seeing me pregnant, its like shes losing her little girl.. am 39 but she still thinks i am her little baby, its sweet yes but its irritating too. oh god am ranting and you probably think what nutcase i am just dont know what its going to be like when moo arrives, my mother in law is 10min away and think she will be much more help mum gets jealous though if she knows my MIL has been here and will be worse once baby arrives anyone else experiencing anything like this>?
