My crazy mother.. in Day to Day

So my mom stayed with Jay for the morning until his caseworker came to pick him up. She took him out, they went shopping, and she set up a new line on her cell plan for his phone.

Wtf mother.

She didn’t see what was wrong with setting up a phone line for a teenager who was about to move to a new family, whose decision it would/should be if he has an active phone. I may have yelled at her when she ignored my fairly-straight forward commentary that it was not up to us to decide if he should have a phone. She relented and took back the sim card. I let Jay keep my old phone since his contacts and apps were on it.

She’s ridiculous. She has no boundaries or limits to her need to give. I love her to death, but omfg. She has been seriously passive aggressive. I think she and Jay bonded more than any of the rest of us did, which is a tad ridiculous considering the comparative amounts of time spent together. But whatever, I get that she’s upset, but just damn.

ANYway. We’re doing alright. We’re both a little sad, but we are doing ok. We also both feel a little relieved, which should say something. I think we made a solid decision. I’m sure it’ll come and go in waves, but we will be ok.

Nathan told me this evening that he doesn’t want to be a little bubba (brother) anymore, he wants to be a big bubba. Gods help me.

I guess it’s easy for her to be judgmental if she only saw the best side of him. Will you be informed about what happens to him next? Hopefully he’ll get placed again soon and can put your mind at ease.

He went directly into a new placement in the area with a family that is licensed to foster and adopt and was specifically looking for LGBT kids. ❤I'm really hoping it will be the place for him.

Sounds like a perfect fit! Who knows, maybe you were just a necessary step for him to get where he really belongs.

I'd like to think so!

I get that she's trying to be nice but there's a big ol line she's stepping over there. Silly silly.

My mom has no boundaries... 🙄

Definitely she stepped over the line but as you said she tends to think with her heart . It’s probably confusing for someone like that to be asked to accept a child as a relative initially then shortly be asked to cut ties . She has not experienced all the stress with J. that you both have either or her feelings might have been different . Or maybe not . But in the end you have been fortunate to have a Mother with a big heart ❤️ Treasure that , as many of us have not been that fortunate to have that kind of Mother.

That she does. It gets her into trouble, but there's no denying she is a kind and loving person.
