Grandparent Wars

Postby pip » Fri Aug 03, 2012 9:58 am

With the trip to London 2 weekends away the grandparents are scrambling for the rights to look after Harry for the weekend. Its quite funny. We decided that it would be better if he stayed in one spot for the weekend and now both sets of grandparents are promising the sun and the moon and the earth for the privelage.
Trying to think of a fun contest to decide the winner :lol:

I'm pretty sure the Daddy would be against it, too!! Although, just wait until he's a teenager, and you may change your mind!

Ugh. You've given me flashbacks. Grandma wars are not pretty. My m.i.l. still gets competitive over buying the girls clothes. :roll:
