Re: If my mom tries to touch me one more time I'm going to break her fingers (vent)

My mom never did this because she hates being touched too. But I did have TOTAL STRANGERS try to do it and THAT made me mad. Whenever I'd see them go for it I would step back and say "I do not like to be touched, thank you." Some of them gave me dirty looks, but when they did I would always ask "How would you like a stranger to come up and grab your crotch? No? Didn't think so. It is rude to reach out and touch people without their permission, pregnant or not"

I had a friend who thought it was her right to touch me whenever she saw me, even after I asked her not to. I ended up having to slap her to get her to stop because she's that thick-headed... and we're not talking a tap on the hand either. If I had gotten her with a closed fist instead of my open hand I might have knocked her out. (But then again, I'm violent when I'm pregnant, so yeah...)

As for your mom, I'm not sure what to tell you...grab HER boob out of nowhere and see what she does? I hate it when people think they're being cute and they're really just annoying.

I know it drives you all crazy, but you are so lucky your mothers care enough to WANT to touch their grandchildren. Yeah it's a little nutty, but so what? I think it is totally sweet and I hope I get to touch my daughters bellies when they are pregnant with my grandchildren. I'd sure hate to think they would all be on DS calling me crazy. Anyways, just my two cents.
I agree with the above.

It's hard to imagine what the other side of the fence is like. For those whose mamas touch them too much, I'm sure it is annoying, but I can almost promise that it beats the alternative.

Everytime I even call my mom just to say "hi" she says within the first 2 mins of the convo, "Just so you know, I can't keep your kids." The same woman who asked for her seat to be moved to the back of the plane on a 5 hr flight where it was just myself, and two LOs. I called to see if we could come for a visit this weekend, she said no... and we haven't seen her in over 2 weeks.

I think I'd prefer a nutty, kind-of-off mama who wanted to show too much affection.

I'm sorry everyone. I keep giggling while reading this thread. I'm sorry that you're being touched when you don't like it. I agree with other posters, sometimes you just have to spell it out to ppl!

I hope for your sanity (and her fingers!) she stops.
