Sheldon was a different child in many ways and it is plausible that Mary , plus she was mother and father most of time of her children, her sense of protectiveness is even bigger, a bit overeacted on some situations. What happened in Texas imo is a normal familiar situation, Mary likes Amy but she is very protective of her son that a few years ago yet needed someone to sing Soft kitty and rubbing Vaporub on his chest when he was sick. Sheldon grew up , Mary knows but she cant help herseld of saying things like she said. It is forgiven material. What realy makes me happy is Sheldon stood up for himself as he is an adult. It might have not been done in most adult way but he felt the need to stand up and it is something. I believe the episode will be very enjoyable, underwear on head apart, lol! The emotions that some shamy promo photos held are so meaningful as how good they are now that as usual I can't wait for see the whole thing on screen. Btw, I undetstand Amy spilling the beans about cohabitation. She might just wanted to put the possible tension from Sheldon side a bit more litle. But she should have talked with him first. I am sure she would do it next time. To the end of his life my father was still slipping me a tenner for petrol when I went to visit them, as if I was still a struggling student. I didn't argue because it wasn't worth it. At least they'd stopped asking me for a list of what food I had in my house and wanting to know if I'd remembered to fill my hot water bottle and brush my teeth. Mary has had hopes of Amy for six years and so now they're shacked up she knows it won't be long before she's got a daughter-in-law to unload some of her burden onto. With the end of the road in sight, she's talking about the beginning. It's fair enough. It's what people put in their speeches at weddings. Sheldon's feeling confident enough to retaliate and criticise his mother's parenting to her face but he's not yet adult enough to keep his trap shut about it. Hence the adolescent behaviour, although he's moved on from being childish. I can understand Amy not feeling she's having a good time. It doesn't make me cringe though. Mary would have spoken to Amy when they were making Christmas plans. She'd have asked Amy about bedroom arrangements. It would have made for awkwardness later if Amy hadn't been honest with Mary at that point. In all likelihood she was put on the spot. With Sheldon only the week before Christmas saying he wanted everyone to tell his mother they had bunk beds, Amy couldn't very well say, 'I don't know, I'll discuss it with Sheldon and get him to ring you back. 'It was right though that the information should come 'officially' from her son, so Amy encouraged him to tell her once they'd arrived. Men's mothers and WAGs talking behind their backs ? That's new. Never heard of that before, ROTFLMAO. MAmry's very first conversation six years ago, over the phone before they'd even met, was how to manoeuvre Sheldon for his own good.
