KatieB Posted December 11, 2008 Share Posted December 11, 2008 I spent a hour today listening to another ballet-mom talk about how "bad" her parents were... Dad was too tired after working a long day to tolerate screaming grandkids and her mom had a awful habit of showing up to her house without first scheduling a visit... Ah... I wanted to knock her sideways..... She's my age and her world is so small and revolves soley around her.... I wanted to shake her and tell her she was being selfish. I wanted to tell her her parents wouldn't always be around and that she should feel lucky and grateful. Instead I just nodded my head, smiled sympathetically and said nothing while my left eye twitched randomly as my anxiety and blood pressure rose. I don't know why it affected me so badly today. I know she was just being "normal". It just made me really miss my parents. As good as I had it with them- I know I was luckier than most- but today that rationale just makes me miss them more. Just one of those kind of days I guess. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
