Quoting MissIsolde:" Not sure where in PA you area, but we are near Harrisburg and it is not snowing here anymore. Just rain. ... [snip!] ... want to find a way to deal with how much he helps his mom that it wont stress you out. Not really worth the headache, ya know. "
I agree with you that a girlfriend is replaceable and a mother isn't. I love when men help their mothers and take care of them. I think it sets the precedent for how your children will treat you. I can only hope my children would be kind enough to do those things for me when I am older. Afterall, I do everything for them now and will continue doing it as long as I possibly can. People really take their parents for granted, and don't realize it til they lose them. It sucks that he doesn't help you more though.
