YAY!  Our grandma made it for Thanksgiving.  She flew in on her broom Wednesday evening and back out Saturday morning.

I know I have described how PA she is but I think having not seen her in 7 years - I had forgotten.   I wondered how long it would take for her to insult me (thinking it would be a mention of my housekeeping, cooking or parenting skills) nope this time she went straight to my WEIGHT.

Followed by: that baby will never walk if you don't put hard soled shoes on his feet, you are going to give that baby pneumonia if you don't turn that fan off in his room, you don't boil celery for dressing - you saute it and ending with "do you want to end up old, alone & broke like I am ? "

Thank you all for teaching me the bean dip manuever.

Followed by: that baby will never walk if you don't put hard soled shoes on his feet...

So, the answer to the age-old question, "When did Man first walk upright?" is "When he invented hard-soled shoes?"
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."

Glad you came thru with flying colors.  :)

... you don't boil celery for dressing - you saute it ...

I read that as "salute" and wondered if other veggies get the same respect or only the celery *smacks forehead* I need new glasses  ;D

Bless her heart.
Hard soled shoes for babies as necessary? I didn't know anyone still living said that.

I've heard that hard-soled shoe stuff from my MIL.  It's WORSE than untrue, it's bad for growing feet!  An orthopedic specialist told me that any flexible soled tennis shoe will do, no arch supports necessary.  We went barefoot when I was growing up, husband had to wear leather lace-ups.  He's the one with bad feet now.  MIL also told me that breast feeding was inferior to forumula.  :0

Your mom sounds insecure and toxic.  Consider the source.  Glad you survived another visit.

ending with "do you want to end up old, alone & broke like I am ? "

Evil!D wants to respond with " How do you think you ended up that way?"

There's a reason I worked really, really hard on not just blurting out the first thing that Evil!D thinks of.

Thanks y'all !  Some of you are so funny. 

Unfortunately, through the years I have blurted out the wrong things in the wrong places but I have also learned to hold my tongue (I had to put a handle on it a few times) and this was one of those weekends. 

I was able to serve bean dip by the barrelful by the time we got to the airport.
