Back in December, most of my in-laws came for Matt's graduation. They also helped us move. Anyway, right before they left, both of his parents told me that I can call them "mom" and "dad" respectively. I was speechless. Not out of happiness. I don't consider them anywhere near my parents. My parents are my parents. I don't even call my best friends parents mom and dad. And I've known them almost 20 years longer. The last time I talked to his dad, he said it again. I'm so not comfortable with calling them that. But I don't know how to not call them that, but not to have to keep dealing with them saying it. I know I could say that I'm just not comfortable with it. And I kind of said that last December, but I don't think they get it. And I don't think they'll get it no matter how plainly I put it. That is just them. Sigh. Any advice? Anyone else have to deal with this??
This is my blog. I write about being a military wife. Which is pretty much the same as other wives. Except when my husband leaves, it isn't for a week long business trip. Sometimes I write about regular stuff. Sometimes I don't. But hey, this is me. :)
