First Fight

by Mary O'Bryan on November 18, 2010

No, this is not about the first fight of the Bride and Groom. You will have to ask them about that. I am referring to the first fight of the Mother of the Bride and the Bride. This is just about the first official fight. We have fought for many years. Ever since she hit 15 years of age and wanted to go off to boarding school. I said,¬† “I will homeschool you before I let you go off to boarding school”. We have always had a very close but LOUD relationship.

This was a fight about the Bridal Registry. To my daughter’s credit, she wants no gifts. She says that they have everything they need. Each of them are living in a one bedroom apartment and have no need for china, silver, crystal, etc.

I tried to convince her that one day she will host Christmas and need place setting for 12 or 18 people.

Her response is that when that day comes, she will  go out and buy what she needs.

Each time we are together it becomes an issue. To be continued…
