here’s the conversation i had with my mom today…(edited for privacy reasons).
me: mom, i am having an issue with ____ and i feel like i need some help dealing with it.
my mom: what you really need to deal with is ____ , not ____.
me: mom, why do you have to bring up _____ when i wanted help with _____. can’t you just help me with what i feel i need help with?????
my mom: jenny, why can’t i comment about _____?
me: because i was not asking about _____, i was asking about _____.
it’s conversations like this that make seeking my mom’s counsel difficult….
can you relate?????
(of course i am blogging this instead of discussing it on the air because i don’t want to get in trouble with my mom!!!!)
p.s. it’s bunny’s birthday saturday and i am making her a devil’s food cake with white icing- still need help with the icing but it will be home made!
