Mama Mia




I really enjoy ragging on the crazy, unique, wonderful, psychopath I call Mother.

However, tonight I have a story with Mother participating where she was actually not the cause of the anger, misunderstandings and intense bowel cramping.

Mother and my brother's wife are having a disagreement.

No, that isn't right.

They aren't communicating their pissed off attitude towards each other, rather they are sickening sweet as usual.

No, each is griping about the other to the rest of the family...

and friends, neighbors and the UPS guy.

My sister in law is accusing Mother of spoiling her step son, Mother's grandson. Now I haven't read every page of the Grandparent's Handbook but I am pretty sure spoiling of the grandkids is allowed if not mandatory.

SIL is ticked because the last time her son needed a haircut, Mother bribed him with a video game.  Now my nephew is refusing to go with his step mother to get a haircut but is waiting until Grandma can take him so he can score some more loot..

I am so damn proud that he is learning the fine art of manipulation at a young age, a skill that will benefit him greatly in later life. That's my boy!  But I digress...

Instead of my SIL telling the little shit to get in the G-d Damn car because they are going to Hair Cuttery, she is blaming Mother for the fact that she is too much of a wimp to parent.

It is so confusing actually taking Mother's side in a disagreement.  I need to hang out with the woman for a day so she can do something fucked up and right my world.

Now, I have no real intention of reproducing, but I am pretty sure that when your mom tells you to get a hair cut, you do it. Isn't she the one who makes the rules?

Walmart pet clippers run about $ 27.00 buzz the rats nest off herself. Little boy wonder will run to the car for a haircut instead of having that performance repeated

I like Razorbeck's idea.

Now I have to say I would probably be annoyed at my mother in law too, but like you said, it is part of the Grandparenting Handbook....

Too funny. I am sure she will piss you off soon enough and the world will right itself once again.

Spoiling your grandkids is the biggest part of being a grandparent. It is the reward for not killing your children as teenagers!

As an uncle with out kids of my own I whole heartedly agree with the dish, the whole point to other peoples kids is to spoil or even despoil them into whiny sugar filled bratts..... and the send them home

I'm with razorbeck, I got a set of clippers from Walmart for $19.99 and after the second buzz cut. My sons learned how to use the clippers themselves and cut their own hair saving me time and tons of money. Buzz cut the little buggers and they will gladly march to the barber shop for a style cut.

Maybe the SIL could suggest a smaller bribe instead of a video game. Grandparents are gonna do whatever...I learned that from my parents. My son could do no wrong in their eyes.
