Whew. It’s Thursday and one day closer to the weekend (anyone else need another one of those?). It’s also free therapy time, courtesy of Kmama’s Thank You Very Much! Head on over. Ahem… after you check out my gratefulness to a certain family member – it might sound rather familiar if you’ve got one too?
Where to start? Remember last week's TYVM post where my mother was caught giving Itty Bit a LOLLIPOP right before bedtime... then letting him climb up a tipsy stepstool?
Oh no, that was definitely not the end of her special “Grandma Rules”, Thank You Very Much.
Howsabout loading him up with mega sugar before sending him home? Thank You Very Much.
Better yet, encourage him, and ALL the grandkids to stick their fingers in frosting any chance they get, Thank You Very Much.
Then give him a chocolate milk bottle for dessert, Thank You Very Much.
Still not enough? Let’s hop him up on chocolate cupcakes with whipped cream, Thank You Very Much.
Then to make up for all the heartburn I gave her… she breaks out the ultimate weapon… Thank You Very Much.
This is all a terrible affront to all the parenting values she instilled in me (with a childhood devoid of sugar). Let’s see what other havoc she can wreak?
Oh my! She’d never let her grandchildren ride a vehicle without proper safety restraints, Thank You Very Much!
Nor teach him to be insanely noisy, Thank You Very Much.
Nor get him a set of DRUMS for his birthday (Oy vey!) Thank You Very Much.
Most certainly, she should not provide said child with a WHOOPIE CUSHION, Thank You Very Much!
(Seriously Mom… what did I ever do to you?)
And of course, the she breaks the most important Grandparent Rule of all time… never look young enough to be your grandchild’s parent, Thank You Very Much.
