This is a question Mums

Mrs Liveinabin tells us: My mum told me to eat my vegetables, or I wouldn't get any pudding. I'm 32 and told her I could do what I like. I ate my vegetables. Tell us about mums.

The Pros and Cons
First the cons.

Aged 18, drunk, came home, Mum still awake*, greets me in the kitchen as i rummage for foods. Find some frosties, go up to my room, mum follows. We are talking/she is talking at me, i finish the packet of frosties, ball up the empty packet (the plastic bag inner), she offers her hand, i say nah and throw the rubbish in the vague direction of the bin. She lose it and shouts at me. I rolled over to go to sleep, she take of her slipper and starts hitting me. I think i may have started laughing.

*My mum has claimed for numerous years, that she can not "sleep" if i am not home, this has lead to phone calls** etc. I have come home before now and silently, like a drunk ninja, entered the house, climbed the stairs and retired to my room. Her light was on and the TV was on, she was trying to stay awake!! I do remember her calling me, i was in bed and had been for over an hour.

** On one occasion, not helped by the fact my phone was fucking up and only did incoming calls, did out going sms tho. She called to find me walking home from Leiden (about 8km from where i live) she was very annoyed at me. Prolly didn't help i had sent my mate home with my keys without me. What can i say, the chance for a shag offered itself and i took it. She stated "I always do this", was the first time.

My parents have separated, which my mum has taken badly, not helped by the fact my dad is now with someone only 2 years my elder. It was Xmas, we were at the grandparents, my dad was giving me a lift home the next day. 1am i get a call inquiring when my dad would be picking me up. This then lead to "will SHE be with him" and then some abuse. I hung up. The phone went again, we argue, i hang up, i have no problem with my dad's choices in life, it is his to leave. I get home. She picks a fight, which resulted in me very very angry/upset, my, dear departed, sister's diary being brandished with "see you sister didn't like her either", both my grandparents in tears begging her to leave me alone. It all started to calm down, my nan was offering to pay for a taxi in the morning, so dad wouldn't come to the house and i said "for you nan i will happily meet he else where" (or words to that effect), my mum the butts in "Why won't you do that for me". If she had simply, from the start, said "i don't want you to be picked up here" i would have arranged a different location, but instead she picked a fight with me, which went on for 3 hours.

She will never let things go. EVER.

She can be very spiteful with her words. This has taken me a long time to get over, and i am not yet. But when i was younger i remember her saying, on more than one occasion, "I wash my hands of you". The last time she tried this tact, i said fine, if you force me to choose i know who will choose, and only because YOU are making me choose.

The Pros

I know that if i ever need her, she would be there for me. She is currently 400 miles away, i could call right now and she would jump in the car and drive straight here.

I know she loves me, even if she is one of the few people who can get me from calm to glowing red with anger in 0.001 seconds.

The amount of crap she has put up with over the years, caused by me. For instance, when i was 21 i was arrested for trying to steal a bicycle. After a night in the cells, i got home and she told the news rather well, told me i was an idiot and even paid the fine for me ( i was a poor student)

If i am broke she will give me money, even if she doesn't have any.

She will, still to this day, do my washing and seems disappointed that i haven't brought any with me.

Basically she will would move the world for me if she could.

So i do love my mum, even if, i forget a lot of the time.

Funnily, although most of my friend knew both my parents and had a lot of respect for my dad, they would be more afraid of my mothers wrath than my dad, and she is only 5'2"

My mum
has taken to baking at midnight so she's awake when my brother gets home. Is it wrong that I encourage my brother to go out more often so I get more cake and biscuits?
