I listen to women complain how their mothers haven't come to see them but those same mothers travel to Vegas, the Caribbean, or Europe. I have done the same with the in-laws, because my mother comes to visit me, I'm so lucky! I thought I was better than everyone else, I'm happy that my mother goes fun places and enjoys herself, but then I realized that I'm not better than anyone else, as I said I was lucky because she does come to visit, I just haven't ever been tested. Until now. And guess what I'm just like the others, who get along with their mothers, I want her to visit me and not go someplace else for her vacation.
I guess no matter how old the child gets there is always a selfish side waiting to come out.
