Family Rules


My parents are visiting for two weeks.  Yep, two weeks.  They have big plans ahead.  Their time began with a trip to Disney World with my daughter.  In between they plan on playing the role of proud grandparents at my son's football games.  And they'll finish off their time celebrating my son's eleventh birthday.  They have already been here a week and will be here for another few days.  My kids are sleep deprived, full of wonderful food, and their emotional tank is overflowing.  Too bad my parents don't live closer.  Ogden Nash couldn't have said it better, "When grandparents enter the door, discipline flies out the window."  That certainly is the case in our humble abode.  They have already been here one week and my children are starting to question my authority over them.  My son thinks that because my parents are here, his duties around the house are no longer his responsibility.  My daughter gets brave and becomes miss sassy pants.  They think they should be served breakfast in bed, on a silver platter.  I plan on relaxing a bit while they are here and going on dates with my husband.  I will continue with my Etsy.com  posts next week.  This week, I'm enjoying the benefits of having my parents here.  Have a wonderful, fall weekend and enjoy your family.
