I was talking with some other ladies and some of them were expressing some concern over their children not being able to do things for themselves.

I must admit that I am seeing so many girls who are not independent in doing things.....and boys too.

Grandma has an awful lot of say in your house! I hope she doesn't end up living with you too.

I agree with Sue & Moss that she needs to be more independent. I like the added chores idea, maybe every month

that is my hope too Wendy, but the reality is that Gma will be moving in. It's hard to say when or for how long, but it's time for me to perpare for this. My Sis gave me a few great ideas to get more prepared for this and I'll talk to DH some more in the next couple of days.

and LoL - no you were not bad for telling your 9yo "kitchen". That's too funny!!!

Only scary thing about Gma moving now is that she will be with us for a while. She's made it clear that this is what she wants, so it's time for me to get ready for this. For now, I'm telling myself to keep breathing. It really does help!! next is for DH and I to talk things out more. To be honest, I'm making a list. Too many thoughts and things going on right now to remember them all!!
