Revenge is sweet!

My kids (early teens) have just come back from spending 3 days with grandparents. Here is a summary of their comments regarding their stay:-
Nana and Granda-
bicker constantly
watch really bad telly
don't say please and thank you
can be grumpy
talk over people and
don't listen to anyone elses views!
My kids have been really happy to be home, have been good company and helpful this evening - perhaps I should send them more often! :lol:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

lol milims


My MIL always used to say that I was too strict, yet in the next breath would say how well behaved my daughter was (is) and how she could take her anywhere and know she was going to behave well.
2010 is my year of projects - 365 days and 365 projects.

As a young lad, I always respected those adults who were strict.
I may have enjoyed the freedom of those who weren't strict,
But in the end, I generally didn't respect them.

:lol: sounds like the average teen behaviour to me! do you think we'll all regress when we are older :shock: :pale:

That's what I thought too - I think perhaps they have regressed! :lol: I did say to my kids "now you know what it's like for us living with you two!" lol!
