Have you ever had someone in your life that always made you feel like you weren't good enough?! Ok, maybe it's not THAT bad but do you have a Mom or a Mother-in-law or maybe it's a Grandma or a Friend who are always pointing things out and making you feel like you aren't doing a good enough job?
Case in point. My parents stopped over today. I have had a busy day of cleaning house and I was pretty much finished except for one room which I planned to do when Aiden took his nap this afternoon. It's impossible for me to do laundry when he is awake because he LOVES to knock my nicely folded piles over while he is "helping." So within the first 5 minutes of my mom being there, she says 4 things to me about my house.
#1. You should borrow your sister's upholstery cleaner and shampoo your furniture!
#2. At the end of the month do you want me to take a couple days off work and come over and help you touch some paint and other things up?
#3. You know if you put a little bleach in a spray bottle, it will take care of that mildew in the bathroom.
#4. All this room needs is some colored curtains and it would brighten it up a lot.
Ugh! Seriously?! And I bet she doesn't even notice that she does it and it drives me CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!! Be honest. Wouldn't that drive you nuts too?! Or do you think I am totally overreacting to be so annoyed? I love my Mom to death and she does a lot of stuff for me but GEEEEEEEEEEEESH! I am sorry that my house isn't perfect. I have 4 kids and a husband and I do my best to keep it looking good. I mean, I think I do a GREAT job considering all that is on my plate! But she says these things every time she comes over and it drives me bonkers! Ugh!
