I’m pretty sure that there’s an “In-law Counterattack App” that allows all four grandparents to stagger their communications such that it maximizes their quality time and ensures that the parent is not able to forget what the Grandparents really want…
PICTURES. THE MORE THE MERRIER. And yes, THEY YELL IT.
The funny thing is that even though I have a cell phone, DSLR, point and shoot and tablet all at my finger tips, I find it difficult to remember and/or take pictures. I also find it difficult to eat, bathe and go for washroom breaks so I guess it’s not too surprising.
And when I do find the time to take a picture, I take 3,412 of them. Half of them have The Kids eyes closed or are of the back of their head. No matter, the Grandparents want each.and.every.one of them. The best part, they print out each.and.every.one of them. Unfortunately, all of their friends think that The Kids only have one set of clothing. I’m probably the only one that cares.

Aren’t Max’s train track creations lovely. I knew you’d think that.
