It's hard being a Mom
How do you handle when you feelings have been hurt by your daughter, but you really don't want your daughter to know she's unintentionally hurt your feelings?? Her first homecoming dance is coming up. Her dad and I are divorced and it falls on a weekend she is with him. I guess I assumed - and shame on me for doing that - that she would want to come home to get ready for the dance. I made her a hair appt. and thought after that I'd bring her home and help her with her makeup and getting dressed. Wrongo. She told me that after her hair appt. she'll just go back to her Dad's and her Nana will be there if she needs any last minute help with the dress. So now my only involvement with my daugther's first homecoming dance is reduced to taking pictures. This stinks.
