One Twitter user shared this bizarre article:
The other woman?
The author of the article sounds like a real professional
How do we unread this?
Dressing up the young troublemakers and taking them to playdates are only two aspects of parenting. There are also the never-ending questions, the tantrums, the wiping (of faces, hands, bums, dribbles, snot, feces, and vomit...), and of course, the unsolicited advice from the childless twenty-something "grownups."
Of course, there is a lot of fear and self-doubt involved. It’s fine because we signed up for all of these things when we decided to become parents.
However, taking care of our children doesn’t make us their owners. We can’t make their decisions when they grow up.
Our job is to teach them to make their own. If our adult child can’t make decisions (good or bad) then we’ve sort of failed.
And to let them make their own decisions is to let them go. This woman obviously hasn't.
Her child has found a girlfriend.
It is a nightmare
Never, ever being normal:
What did i do wrong?
He is with me tonight? No wonder he is now ex.
Some moms are not so protective of their boys. In fact, they are already trying to find them SOs
We are taking a light approach here and don’t want to believe that the author of the article is conducting some sort of “emotional incest.” We would like to believe that it’s just one mom sobbing over her son’s growing up.
However, her satisfaction with the fact her son chose someone who resembles her is a bit disturbing. And, yes, we are choosing our words carefully.
