I'm so sick of seeing posts on here about mothers of the bride and FMILs acting like AWs, divas, crazy brats, and mom-zillas. Couple that with trying to deal with my own mom and I feel like there's a creepy and extremely annoying epidemic going around of moms thinking they're the center of everything.
My mom (although she's usually awesome and we've always been really close; lately I've been keeping my distance from her) went on quite an epic rant over the weekend in which she referred to herself as "Mother of the Bride" -- yes she capitalized it-- about 11 times in 2 sentences. "I'm the MOB, I should be getting X, I should be doing Y, I should be involved in A-Z, I'm the MOB, I want I want I want I want I want, me me me me me me me me me me me because I'm the MOB." WTF?
I've been including her as much as possible, sharing everything with her, taking her with on occasion to do wedding stuff, etc. And she's NOT paying for the wedding. That's pretty much the extent of what I'm able to do and apparently that's not enough attention for her? Totally baffled.
And although a lot of you Knotties have some entertaining mom stories that can be kind of funny, I also feel sorry for anyone dealing with these mom-zillas cuz I know how frustrating and stressful it gets. Moms, you gotta knock it off!!!
Anyone have a crazy story they can share? I love finding that I'm not alone in this! (And I know I'm not!)
