I met with my parents today to go over the menu and other details. While my wife and I are footing the bill, we are still trying to include both sets parents in every detail of our wedding. My father has been on board since day one and I couldn't be happier. He has even traveled with us to New Orleans to look at venues - Mom has been a little harder to get to come on board (she was also the one that kicked me out of the house at the age of 17).
Today was going great until dad left the room and I took that time to ask my mother for a favor. I asked if she would mind giving me "something borrowed" for the wedding. Her response was: "Do you want my dirty underwear?" Honestly, I was way to stunned to even respond at first. I think every emotion possible ran thru my body in a matter of seconds. My dad re-entered the room by the time I finally gathered myself and all I could muster was "is that your final answer." I felt like I was on a game show. She, of course, replied yes. He immediately asked what was going on...prob because I was about to burst into tears. I didn't say anything. I just took the paperwork and left.
I understand if she isn't on board - fine. But, there was no reason to respond that way. Just say I'd rather not. I really don't want her at my wedding I'm sooo ticked. I'm afraid to tell my dad what she said because I know this will cause an argument between them and I don't want that. But how can I tell him only he can come to the wedding? Can I trust that he won't bring her - I don't know.
Mother Goose and Jiminy Cricket - how can she be so friggin' cold and heartless?
