We all have authority figures in our lives.

I think that I would have to talk to her about these "slips" and tell her that if she does slip the gift will not be permitted to be accepted.

I agree with all you said. I just thought that at this point, it would be time to start passing the torch a bit, but she holding on tighter than ever. I'll let you in on my secret. D bought my ring. We picked it out right after my Bday. Now if he'd just get to the question popping :0) I like what you said about how it's D's job - I don't think Gma should jump around or over him and she's been doing that a lot.

She may be hanging on more as her daughter is holding on less and GM is afraid that she will lose this connection with the girls.....especially if she moves!

I'll really think about the BM letting go thing. I'm not seeing that happening right now, but maybe Gma thinks that will happen when she moves. Gma is definately holding on tighter and tighter. I don't want the girls to stop seeing her and her family at all, but it can't be at the cost of me not seeing mine. Every year, we go to see her family and we've never gone to see mine. I'm having issue with this and I just need to bring it up. Thanks for the congrats!! Next week will be two months since we picked out that ring. I think that if he doesn't ask me this weekend, I'll just have to take the risk and ask him. It won't be nearly as romantic, but....

25 years that's wonderful!! See I'd like to take my next photography class too and if we are going to plan a wedding, I was thinking about skipping it until next semester. If I don't take it, he most likely won't ask. If I do take it, he will ask. LOL!!! Oh, and volleyball starts up soon. Should I play on one team or two? :0)

Sometimes you have to push for the things you really want!
