My Mood:
Anyone NOT have a good relationship with their mother?

Long story short, we're "off again" in our "on again/off again" relationship. I am sick of her trying to control me, tell DH and I what to do, treating my kids like they are puppets, etc. She has zero respect for me, my life, my family's life, or our inability to literally drop what we are doing and come running at her beck and call.

BUT, I feel sucky because I don't want this negative energy while I am pregnant, and I feel like I am the one who always has to make it all better, because Lord knows, she won't. And I want to have a relationship with my dad, which she conveniently also controls. Ick. Am I the only one? I am at that "I don't ever want to speak to her again" point while my heart is breaking for my kids, because she continuously breaks their hearts and yet, I still feel like I have to do everything I can to force a grandparent/grandchild relationship.
