Janet, if you're a horrible grandmother, then so am I because I feel the same way. But it's not like I sit around and chain smoke with them here or something either.
At pc's house I go outside, because it's HER house. kwim? But sil *thought* he was gonna lay down the "law" and no smoking whatsoever..........yeah, that didn't work. Not if you want me watching your kids.
DDD...........I had to laugh at yours when you said toddlers crawling around on the floor equal to the dogs among the bones and toys.........Nichole caught Betsy trying hard to share her bone with Oliver. She simply adores him like she does Aubrey. And she shared with Aubrey, whenever she could get away with it. LOL (thank heaven my dogs are wormed regularly) Nichole's dh was freaking and Nichole just calmly watched dog and baby and laughed. (Oliver tries to eat GRASS, just imagine what is on THAT LOL )
