I see my mom Monday - Friday and have been for over 20 years. My dad passed away over 10 years ago. I do not see my mom on the weekends but my brother comes on Sunday.
My mom makes me feel quilty for not asking her on some Saturdays - My mom doesn't drive and she does get a bus to pick her up at her house when she wants but somedays the bus doesn't run on Saturdays. I was told that We are not as close as before my dad passed away. I have a husband and 2 children and on Saturdays we like to be by alone. My husband is not crazy for my mom and the same thing for my mom. My daughter also just wants mom and dad on the weekends. I did have my mom and my brothers family over on Christmas.
Today, I asked my mom what she wanted to do and she told me she was down and was crying on the phone that she didn't feel wanted and felt all alone. I felt terrible inside but explained to her that I do come to see her M - F we go to lunch, shopping and whatever.
I feel terrible my mom feels like this - anyone else have same issues?
