FINALLY!!!!! My mom came up today and, as is always the case, it was starting to get ugly between them. I stepped in and let difficult child know, in no uncertain terms, that she was out of line. Short story. I wasn't exactly diplomatic about it. But, sometimes you have to fight fire with fire. In the end, difficult child actually hugged my mom goodbye and said, "Thank you". My mom doesn't exactly "get" difficult child, but all she wants is to be appreciated for all that she does for her. And she does a lot for difficult child. Now, difficult child actually wants to go to my mom's tomorrow. I can't remember the last time she has wanted to go. Ohhhhh...I hope this lasts.
