Big Mommy and Little Mommy
I know some of you folks think I sound petty,but there are things that just bother the crud out of me. One of them is my wife's insistence on sharing very personal things about my son to her daughter. It drove me crazy years ago. I always felt she was elevating her daughter to be "Little Mommy." When I listen to her, it doesn't sound any different than the run down she would give me on the phone. Almost too spousal--I don't remember my parents doing this. On the other hand, I don't remember my siblings not knowing their role as siblings and children...they didn't think they were miniature parents.
