Father and son trip cancelled on account of a case of Mom

9 February 2005

Well, yesterday I got a call from my mom informing me that she’ll be coming along with us on the trip down to see my great-aunt Norma this weekend. I’m a bit bummed out, because I was really looking forward to having this time with my dad and me alone, but my mom is unapproachable on this. She’s gotten so lonely and so insecure that she cannot stand to be alone, and no one else is around to take her off our hands. I mean, don’t get me wrong — I love my mom, and under normal circumstances, I wouldn’t mind having her along, but for me, the whole point of going through this exercise so close to the birth of my second son is to get some time to connect and reflect with my dad on the trip, not just to go see my great aunt. So, I don’t know what I should do. I would tell them, but I know it’s just gonna make my mom sad, and I don’t want to hurt her feelings. At the same time, I know I’m just going to get subjected to mom and dad fighting on the trip. Maybe I just need to let go of it, and see what comes of it. Who knows, maybe it’ll be a great experience and it’ll give us a chance to bond, or it will give me a chance to confront the both of them about past issues. I don’t know. I do think I need to talk to my dad at least, and tell him I’m disappointed that we’re not going just alone, and that he and I need to schedule some time together. Of course, with the new baby coming, that’s gonna be a long ways off.
Anyone feel like babysitting my mom for a weekend?
