Now that the kid is married, perhaps you should let go?
Sometimes mothers don’t realise when their motherhood is done, that it is a role that has an expiry date, that they need to retire and do stuff for themselves. I also find myself holding my tongue when I want to say “me too” when they are planning an outing or a movie, because I realise just in the nick of time that these are their times to enjoy their days of youthful fun! I would have become a “kabab mein haddi”.
It is hilarious and sad at the same time when mothers fail to recognise this after their sons have married and now have different pleasures and responsibilities. The boy who used to be the centre of all her attention, hopes and dreams, suddenly seems to discard her, in favor of this young pretty stranger – his wife. Boys and their mothers do share a special bond, but mothers need to draw a line, sometimes.
