My mother made me feel horrible

So this morning my mom was supposed to come over to take care of my son for the day while I'm at work. I have daycare lined up for him when I need it but she insisted that she take him today. It's not the first time she's watched him but lately she's been late getting there. I asked her to be at my house at 7am so I can get ready without having to worry about bottles, etc. Today she's 20 minutes late, my son woke up at 7 for his bottle and I ended up being late to work. When I brought it up to her, she gave me that look...you know, that "mother" look where she's hurt and dissapointed and makes you feel like the scum of the earth. Was I really wrong to bring it up to her that she was causing me to be late to work? Really? I know she's helping me by saving me money from daycare and I do want her to have her own time with my son but is this really the cost? To consistantly be late to work because I can't bring up the fact that she's making me late for work?
Am I really that much of a jerk for being annoyed? Anyone else have this problem?
