Update on mother wanting to chat
Sorry, for the delay (not like I thought you all were on the edge of your seats), but there's been tons going on this week.
We did talk with my parents, and all in all it went fairly well. Dh and I had a printed list of points to discuss (it works well this way for them/us). Early on, my mother made a nasty comment about how the conversation seemed all one-sided and by the end she stormed off b/c she had made a comment that I was manipulative like her and I simply stated that I didn't consider myself a manipulative person (although I think we all manipulate in some ways as human beings).
There is so much more that I'd like feedback on including dealing with my friends and my bf's recent statement that he doesn't see this being a long-term relationship, but I'm simply too drained (he and I were up late last night discussing it and DS2 was not able to be convinced to go back to sleep with mama).
