OT: A vent about my parents
I think I mentioned after our trip to the states that neither of my parents really wanted much to do with DD. My dad was a lot worse, as in visibly disinterested around her. My mom, like she is famous for, spends every spare moment trying to paint a different picture for everyone. She claims he adores her, and things of the like. She most frequently does this to me, trying to get me to change my perspective on the situation to what she wishes it were, because (as we all know from the BFs we deal with) the view underneath the sand is far better than the view above it!
DD turns 1 in a few days. My mom wrote me an e-mail about the gift she is sending, which is one of those books that you can record your voice on. She said, "We had a good time recording the book. Dad made me let him pick what pages he wanted first! he is such a sucker for her. I have to keep him out of the gift shops at baseball stadium." (Meaning the MLB stadium they go to).
How can she not know by now, considering I'm 28, that I don't buy what she's selling?! It's so annoying. I just wish she'd stop. Instead, I just don't respond.
And my dad? Nice job punishing an innocent baby for feelings that you have toward a situation (my brothers and I) that doesn't even involve her! Get the bleep over it. They're crazy if they don't think she'll see through all of this when it continues her entire life, because chances are it won't change.
