I don't wanna hijakc Janet's thread, but... I have to say, the broom closet, for some reason, has been making an honest effort. Still very twisted and strange, in my opinion, but noticable effort. Christmas gifts were not grossly uneven this year. She complimented wee on his behavior and dress. She told him she heard he was doing good in school. She has expressed dismay for easy child 2's clothing choice and not blamed me (tho charged me with fixing it...but hey, progress where you can find it). She admitted her son is possibly to easy on easy child. And Friday, she called and asked if we would use some chicken leg quarters because she was getting some for husband's sister, and wanted to be "fair". I decllined because I don't have space to store them, and husband's sister doesn't have money for groceries, so she needs it, and we really don't...which I told her, but thanked her for the offer. So anyway...maybe, just maybe????
