Moms and getting ready for wedding drama...

Did any of you have moms that took away from your joy of planning and preparing the week or two before your big day? She’s watching my children while I’m running last minute errands. I’m 3 days away from the big day. We are leaving town tomorrow. She’s complaining that I’m not leaving her enough time for her to prepare, that she had things she needs to get done also, that she needs to bring my grandmother to get her hair done and could I please add her to the wedding party appointments last minute? I keep giving her details of all my appointments and everything that I need to get done, but she keeps forgetting and making me feel bad because she has stuff to do also. I am the bride and am just trying to enjoy myself...

    It can be tough because it feels like there is so much to do, but maybe she's a little overwhelmed as well. Can your fiance help with the kids to alleviate her stress some?

    Why aren’t you bringing your children with you or having your FS stay with your children or even hiring a sitter? I have a daughter and she came with me to every appointment I had or she stayed with H if I couldn’t bring her. It isn’t really your mom’s job to make sure your children are cared for so you can enjoy yourself.

    Sadly, no. He’s working from home today and also really sick. He’s also going to see the doctor. I’m understanding that she is overwhelmed, but she’s trying to make me feel guilty, which gives me anxiety.

    My children are home sick from school. And, I’m not enjoying myself. I’m getting logistical stuff done. We are leaving tomorrow. The thing is, she says yes, but then mentions this stuff when I bring the kids to her.

    I’m also not gonna be gone all day, just a couple of hours. The baby is recovering from
    a double ear infection and it’s cold out. I’m just in a tough spot.

    It definitely sounds stressful, on everyone involved, with the kids and your FS sick. I don't think you can except this particular week to be joyful and stress-free with everything going on. Just try to get through it as best you can, thank your mother for helping, and plan to enjoy your actual wedding day.

    She has to get ready for her daughters wedding. Probably the biggest day in a moms life. You need to get someone else for ya kids.

    I agree with this. It is not fair of you to burden her with watching your sick kids knowing she still needs to get ready too, and then complain that she isn't too happy about it. It sounds like she is doing you a big favor. Otherwise, hire a babysitter.
