So my mom is always negative. I say I want to homeschool and she says that it won't be good for my daughter because she won't be around other children. I say we want to start remodeling our house and she says it will be too much work and I should move. I have a bad day or I'm ticked at my husband for some stupid reason and her first words out of her mouth are "you'll always have a home here" I say that we've not started potty training yet (27 months) and she says "why not you were potty trained by the time you were 18 months." I can't say anything without getting some negative comment. If our house isn't spotless clean when she comes over she always says soemthing like "wow didn't have time to clean up or wasn't that sitting there last time?" So my husband and I have started to discuss and go through the motions of getting a small family farm. The places we are looking at are at least 2 hours away and I've not mentioned a word to her. The older I've gotten the more I can't stand to talk to her. I grew up in a negative household and I'm sick of being in one. She wants to tell me how to raise my daughter which I suppose would be fine if I think she did a good job with me but I think she didn't. I'm sorry to say this about the woman who raised me but what is one to do? So pretty much the plan unfortunately is to buy the property move down there then tell her we are officially moving.
