selfish?!?!? no way! they are adults. They have their own kitchens and their own grocery lists, I assume. They have the nerve to mock your life choices? what would they say if you picked on them about their career or other choices? respect goes two ways. No, you are not supposed to remain the perpetual sacrificing mother. You raised them and launched them. enough with the catering to them already.

If that sounds like tough love, well, I have had to do that with my kids. They get their knickers in a twist because at holidays, I invite them but do not cook the meat and dairy foods that my mother, now deceased, used to make. I veganized a few dishes, swapped out others for vegan alternatives. "but we want things just as they used to be!" they cry. life changes, though.
