Today she broke from the norm and actually acknowledged that I'm pregnant when she called me from a garage sale and asked if I wanted her to buy some birth announcements and a bunch of clothes. I thanked her for the thought but said that I would like to pick out my own things since this is my first baby and it's exciting for me. She got huffy and quickly said "'bye" before hanging up. My mom's a very frugal person and she just can't seem to understand that I can afford to buy nice things for my child so I shouldn't have to settle for whatever is the cheapest over what I really want. I've already gotten so many hand-me-downs from my sister. I got her crib, high chair, stroller, swing and exersaucer and I am very happy to have it. Those are expensive things that I don't have to buy now. But that just makes it even easier for me to be able to afford other things that I want to choose.
I wish she could understand it and be excited for me, but apparently that's asking too much.
Thanks for "listening".
