Meet the parents... um... No!


Parker’s parents are coming to visit from North Carolina for a week and I am horrified.

To imagine what the people who raised this rigid man must be like has actually caused nightmares.

I do not plan to be home when they come to the house. They do not know me or about me and I agree that we should keep it that way.

My mother supports my choices- she was not given a choice. She speaks to Parker when she calls and is always polite. She even agrees to respect my wishes for my estate if I die an untimely death.

I wish all parents could be as accepting.

I understand your angst, but meeting them really gives you some incite on the person you're with. I met my boy's mom on mother's day, so imagine how nervous I was, but it turned out to be cool and I was able to connect the dots about some of his issues/fear/likes/dislikes

On an side note... I went to a discussion with Junot Diaz

Chicken! I'm sorry, did I type that out loud? LOL


I am glad your parents are understanding and choose to love you unconditionally. That is the way it should be. I don't understand how some parents missed that memo. Amazing.

i agree but sadly not all parents are excepting. In time we only pray it gets better.

Turn me up a lil said...

damn that's kind of sad...I think you should at least try to see what they're about.

Oh nah, you need to be there when they get there. Besides, u two live together and you make (or should be) fried chicken for the man. Besides, it's your house just as much as it is his. So just stand by his side and smile. No one really likes their in-laws.
