  • I'd like to nominate myself for this award.

    I'm leaving tomorrow for California for a funeral. I'll see my dad for the first time since my wedding, and I'm not that excited to see him. Mostly for selfish past-issue type of crap. He started dating this woman, apparently for more than six months. I'm not excited to see him, I don't want to do any random family bonding shiz, and I don't want to talk to her at all.

    Part of me feels like a brat, the other part, just isn't ready to deal with this. My father has a bad roller coaster type pattern with women. Most of them are stupid lame women who don't know how to deal with him as a S.O. I'm kind of a mini-me of him, so they normally take out their crap for him, on me. His last wife was particulary the worst.

    The woman who died literally saved me from their house when I was 20 and an abusive relationship with his last wife. I didn't talk to my father for three years after that situation. All of it is history, but I'm afraid to have it repeat, plus the emotional distress of losing her is kind of enough on my plate you know.

    With the fear and anxiety of it all, I haven't been very nice to him. Also, like I stated above. I'm NOT interested in meeting her, having dinner or anything. I feel like he's going to force it on my sister and I while visiting. Like, guess who's in the car when he picks us up.

    Anywho, I'm being kind of immature and rude. So pass me the lump-o-coal.

    That being said, I also agree - SW2B/SaveTheWorld FTW!

    mm i guess that could be a good rule. especially the ones where its like... "best..." because everyone wants to be the best!

  • smo- not to throw ames' life out there but she is in a similar situation with her mother as you are with her father. i always tell her that unfortunately you cant pick who people fall in love with. also unfortunately for you, you don't have a child to fall back on by saying, "bringing wives/gf's/so's in and out of baby smo's life is not healthy and we wont tolerate it"

    i dont think it makes you a bad person or deserving of coal. its hard to fight the desire to parent your parent.

  • I vote for Jill for saying she's the best. Snot. Stick out tongue

    Smo, like Stees said, I'm in a similar situation with my mom. It's really hard when your parents start acting like children and there's nothing you can do about it. I've had to put my foot down recently and tell her she is not allowed to bring strange men around my child, nor is she allowed to bring her boyfriends to our family functions because it raises questions from my older nephews and it's not healthy.

    I know you feel like you're being a brat. I feel that way sometimes too. But sometimes it takes being a little bit bratty to get your parents to see that they're being bratty too. KWIM?

    Yeah. Sorry you're dealing with something similar. I know you've talked about your frustrations with your mom and her recent relationships and what not.

    I'm sure this lady is great and fantastic. I'm just not interested. I told my sister to be the buffer, because if I say that to my dad, it'll probably come off b!tchy.

    It's not only that my dad's women are annoying as hell, he turns into this super hero for them and their families. He has this horrible habit of putting us on the back burner for them. It seemed like we actually got to a normal place, I don't want this to eff it up.

    But, she could be really awesome. Odds are just not in her favor.

    Agreed. And sorry Smo you don't deserve the lump of coal for feeling crappy about your Dad's decisions and his love life.  I think you have a right to your feelings.
