My Dear MIL organised all of my baby's things - from the pram to the car seat, and even priced a cot, only to find that her dastardly daughter-in-law (em, me) had in fact dared to do these things already! There was quite a Scene. To this day she thinks I'm ungrateful... She'll never get over the shock, I fear! Is there an option for 'Grandparent Most in Need of This Book'???!!!

My son ran in on Mum on the loo & screamed as loud as he could 'Nanna's got a big vagina'.  Poor Mum, she still hasn't recovered.

My grandmother just laughed when my son came to me and said I am smarter than you( he was 5) so I pulled up a chair and said to him when you can tell me what 20 + 20 is we will have this discussion. Thankfully my son has forgotten!!

Mr 3 who is obsessed with motor vehicles recently acquired a small toy fork lift. He proudly showed me his latest toy and went on to tell me all about it.....I just had to smile when he informed me that the prongs sticking out the front were called the forks....he then added that they were for forking everything up. Now whenever we are out and about and he sees a working forklift he will shout out at the top of his voice " look, there is a workman forking everything up"

She is too young to talk as yet but managed to throw up on me (Nanna) and wee over my husband (Poppy) all within minutes.
