A Mother's Prerogative


When you are young and single, your mother will nag you for not having a girlfriend or boyfriend.

When you have a significant other, your mother will complain that you are not married.

When you are married, your mother will complain that you haven't given her a grandchild yet.


When you are married and have a child, your mother will criticize that an only child will become spoiled and needs a sibling or two.

And finally, when you are married with children, your mother will whine that you do not spend enough time with her!

Whatever you do, your mother will never stop nagging you, so my only advice is to try to accept it.
