Mom is cranky and not open to discussion. She says I am poking at her, forcing her to do things and apparently, I am not treating her like an adult.
The lack of an insightful, two way conversation is frustrating for me; I just want to understand her way of thinking. I don’t get her attitude of, “I don’t want to talk and you can’t MAKE me.” And yes, there is a barely perceptible foot stomp, a crossing of the arms and a lip pout right along with that stubborn attitude. No really, I am not stretching the truth. Mom has reverted to an over-sized toddler. But a toddler who could talk, if she only wanted to.
