What I mean by the title is. I will be in the middle of something. When my mother suddenly (no emergency) wants my attention. After she has told me something else.
Today, There was a Christmas card from a family member for me to read. If I had waited, she would have assumed I wasn't going to read it. So, I chose to read it right away. While I was reading it. She started telling me about another family member, and asked me if I was listening to her. When I said 'No', she walked off in a huff.
This happens quite a lot. Yet, I try to respect her when she is in the middle of something.
Am I the only one experiencing this from a senior parent?
