Then take this opportunity to not be 12 and speak up exactly how you feel. A take on someone's repsonse to a letter -- tell her you are her child but those are YOUR kids and she will respect your wishes or will not be going with you to outings nor you with her. Her choice. You gotta give her the line not to cross otherwise she'll just do it.<quoted text>
You're right about that. She's way more sensitive to that kind of stuff. My mom thinks the kids should just buck up and deal.
I decided this might be the last vacation we do together with them. She always makes me feel like I'm still 12 years old.
Sorry, Squishy. Some parents just don't understand that you are now a parent and you need to tell her and be firm like a good parent. Sucks, but there it is.
At least you know she loves the kids and that's a good thing.
