Ah, I get you - not even necessarily that your kid shows bad behaviour or anything, just that you find them socially unpleasant sort of thing? My dad and I were like that for a few years. My dad has a hard time sitting still - I could read for hours. When my dad does read, it's historical novels and biographies - I read fantasy and science fiction. On top of that, there really wasn't a single topic we held the same opinion on and we were both very stubbornly insistent that we were right.

We were perfectly civil with one another and oddly managed to have a good deal of respect for each other, we just couldn't carry on a conversation and actively avoided spending time alone together for a bit. We did get past it, though, when I discovered the literary classics.

My granmother, who is one of the sweetest, most unconditionally loving people I know, does not enjoy spending time with my mother. This has been the case since my mother was a child. My mother was physically abusive to her younger brother, she was kind of a bully to kids in the neighborhood, and she was very insolent to adults. My grandmother had her go to a child psychologist, but she was so uncooperative with the child psychologist that the doc told her he couldn't work with her. My grandmother has spent the last 66 years wondering what she did wrong as a parent, and what she could have done right. She told me all this after I had reached adulthood and I approached her about the possibility of my mother having a personality disorder. She loves my mother and cares about her well-being, but ultimately, she told me she can't spend 5 minutes alone with my mother without wanting to run from the room. I know exactly how she feels. It's a sad, lonely feeling for a mother to want to connect to her daughter, but is unable to. It's probably more of a lonely feeling for a mother to feel that way about her daughter than for a daughter to feel that way about her mother.

ETA: My mother has a younger brother who has a very good relationship with my grandmother, and who is a well-adjusted human being who definitely does not have the same personality issues that my mother has.


*hugs*

that, right there, is the thing that terrifies me. Because it would hurt so much, to love someone you didn't like. Not that I think it's likley, but it'd be SO awful that even an outside chance makes me think.

Our little buddy is growing up so fast. This is the photo that Mommy took to make his 'ID card' to help prove that he's not 2 years old yet.<--airline people asked last time because he's so tall for his age.

He absolutely looks like a Mini Chuck. I think it's the eyes (but I'm a terrible judge of these things).

I just came back to say: the next two artists on Kidlet's playlist = Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden. Them and the Pet Shop Boys - now that's a club night I'd like to see.

Edit to add: and now, Nancy Sinatra. This is a boy that likes rap.

I am confused. Delighted that he isn't constrained by genre, but confused.
