Eat me out of house and home

My son is a growing boy who has become a teenager. He eats dinner, but he also munches constantly. Tonight, it was dinner, and then hot cocoa, then a cheese sandwich. He doesn't like his body image. Overweight runs in our family, but it doesn't phase him. Then my mom is no better. She makes cookies constantly and then has a fit when he eats them all... Then don't make them. No one in our house needs them. Makes me mad. Then she is the first to throw a fit!
Any suggestion on how to address this?

How do you address family members who are showing mental signs of aging? Any suggestions on how to be "politically correct"?

My son's Christmas wish

My sons wish for Christmas is for me to be home with him more, instead of working so much. As a mom, I guess I need to get my priorities in order. I don't want to work so much but I feel I must, to pay the bills and so my son has stuff and doesn't have to go without. I am torn and depressed. Now I am even more confused about the holidays. I have gotten to be such a scrooge anyway but this year I am crabby and confused.

My son still believes in Santa, and I have no intention of breaking his heart on that. It is special and I love him. Anyway... this morning I got a reality check... try a slap in the face with a really large object...

In his letter to Santa, he asked for the typical boy things... and then he asked for me to spend more time with him. I work two jobs and go to school... which takes me away from home. He asked Santa for me to spend more time with him because he misses me and loves me.

Now my heart and mind are torn. I guess I need to put my priorities in order and focus on what is important...

Holiday obsession

My obsession over the holidays is watching The Muppet Christmas Carol over and over...and over... and over...

Stressed mom

When others start noticing I'm not myself, is that bad? I've been stressed and worried. I've been too busy to stop and think, let alone worry about myself. I can feel myself struggling, but I don't have time to stop or I will let people down.
