Grandma Detox

It's day 5 of Grandma detox. My mother in law left on Monday. The kids took it hard. There was a fair amount of shaking and rolling around on the floor.

We had to relearn the meaning of the word "no" again. The kids didn't understand why I didn't spring up out of my chair to top off their juice cups. Snacks were not delivered to them the precise moment they asked for them. And most important of all, they couldn't comprehend why they didn't get ice cream every night.

I'm happy to report they are slowly returning to their pre-grandma visit selves. It's been a hard journey but we are almost there.

In defense of grandmas everywhere, and in the words of my own mother..."wait, your turn will come and you'll do the same thing." Now that I am the grandma all I can say is she was right.
