We went to my mom's for Christmas dinner. I told her not to bother fixing anything because of recent back problems. She didn't listen. Welll... here is my issue. My sister who also came seemed to think everything was just fine and dandy. Hey mom could you fix the baby a bottle. Hey mom could you see what they are doing? So on and so forth. All the while mom and me are trying to put food on the table. Well it came to clean up and guess who is M.I.A? Sis. I'm in there trying to get things washed up so mom won't have to when she yells for me. I'm like what? (I thought maybe it might be something important.) She asks for a piece of dessert to be brought to her!!! Yes, she was putting the baby to sleep. I told her I would after I got the dishes done. She didn't blink an eyelash didn't say wait until she could help. Nope just says o.k. Then mom comes in and I tell her what sis said. She then goes to get the dessert herself to take it to her! I just wonder why she enables her! I also had a sister-in-law (sort of) that loaded of a load of left overs and hit the road so she would get out of helping too! I am so dissapionted. I knew not to hope for better but thought after she had kids she would understand how much work is involved and want to help out to lighten mom's load.
