With Mom’s impending arrival creeping closer, I found myself getting more and more nervous about the visit.
The last time Mom was here, I was pregnant with Cara and Mom flew in on my “due date”.
I was supposed to have Cara on the 26th of October; Cara didn’t show up until the 3rd of November.
Mom and my relationship had been strained for several years and being pregnant and past due didn’t help things.
Once Cara was born, Mom ended up leaving early because the whole situation had only gotten worse.
So, to make a long story not as long, I was dreading this visit.
But, Cara is Mom’s granddaughter and I wasn’t going to deny either of them the chance to get to know one another.
So far, things have been fine.
Mom hasn’t made any snarky comments. She hasn’t fixated on Cara and Cara took to Mom like Cara has known Mom for Cara’s entire life.
I’m not sure if Mom is chilling out and becoming more”normal” or if I’m chilling out and just going with the flow more.
Whatever the case, I’m just crossing my fingers that I don’t jinx it.
