My oldest grandbaby came over a few nights ago and was complaining about getting into trouble with her Dad. I asked her what had happened (she always loves to tell about anything that doesn't go her way).We sat down on the couch and she proceeded to talk with her hands and tell of spilling water and her Dad Swotting ( I think I spelled that right), her behind. She said," Kywee (Kylee got in trouble too) for running in the house and spilling water in the floor. Kylee went on to bed but Kinnee had to come and tell her point of the case at hand. She said,"I wus runnin" in de house and spiwwed woter on the flooooor and Dad got me". I said, Well, you are not to run in the house and keep food and drinks in the kitchen only. No comment. She said,"I know my buttt is wed as bwood (blood) and gettin'a whippin wus not pot of our conversation." Who's conversation"? "Mine and Dad's." I let her know there is no conversation once you have been told no. No simply means no. We went on to bed and she fell asleep right away from running like a Indian through the house. The next morning I was putting my makeup on for work and she was sitting beside me and she looked at me and said,"Nan> I need yoooooou to wook at my butt"!!!!!!!!! What in the world child is wrong with you? She said," my butt mite stiww be wed from wast night and do you have any shea butta (shea butter)to put on it"? I put shea butta on her bottom and she thank me and said to me,"Can I take sum home wif me
cause I might need it afta while"? Her bottom was not red that night or the next morning but that shea butta does miracles and comes in real handy when those kids try to make it look like they do no wrong and need to correcting. God love them all.

I believe in spanking, but if you mean to say that your grandchild was beaten to the point where it not only left marks but the marks were red and hurting the child for hours afterwards and you had to apply medicine, then there as absolutely no question whatsoever that that is felony child abuse. By not reporting this to the police it makes you complicit as well. You had better get control of that situation before you all end up in prison.

Oh! no. Her bottom wasn't even red. She wanted to just tell on Dad. She thinks she doesn't need correcting for much of anything. I put shea butter on a bottom that was totally not red at all. You missed my point all together. No grandchild of mine is ever left with any marks of any kind. She just still had it on her mind where she got in trouble for running a spilling water. They are both a princess to us all. She gets shea butter after a bath and she uses it for lip balm every night. Sorry you misunderstood.

Great. and don't think the subtlety of her gettin a whoopin for running thru her house but then feel asleep right away after "running like an indian" thru your house is lost on me. Especially since you explained the reason for the "no conversation" Clasic Bridgette! Mamaw, You is the bestest most bipolaryist granny eva even in all the history of the hills.

You got the bipolar part almost pegged. No, I am not but I am a nut and I love it.You know biploar, to me, is one who is up and down and in and out. No steady ground on which to stand. I am a pretty steady nut case.LOL>LOL>LOL>.She (Kinnee) is so extremely me made over it is scary. She is so dramatic and has the most wonderful imagination and I hope she never lays it down. What is life without imagination? Too ordinary for me. Thanks for being in my "granny fan club." Surely to Heaven I am not the only delirious Nana out here. I just happen to be the one that can tell a good story and it be factual.It is hard to spell the words she uses to make people understand them. I spell 'em like she says 'em.The baby granddaughter is mild and meek and kind and gentle and thinks I am nuts. She just laughs at me through her "passy" and keeps trucking. The oldest is like lint on your shirt you cna't get off.Love 'em both. Bridget

You are more than welcome. She tells on the least little thing because she knows I am going to make over her. If she falls in the floor, instead of getting up she waits on me to come pick her up. I have to hold her hand as she goes to sleep. She sleeps on my arm.She says I am her bestest frind in da ho wurllld.So I guess it is worth it. The least one entertains herself and is so not like Kinnee. No drama. She stays with me too but on her terms. She tells me when and that is how it is. Kinnee doesn't know where home is most of the time. They won't always need me and I will be lost.Til then, it is on.I swear there is NOTHING like the love of a child. Thank you for understanding what I meant.

No Bridge you aint the only crazy nana out there for sure. Please tell me you are writing all these little stories down. You could so totally write a book. And who knows with the proceeds get the meds you need for you "steady crazy' as you call it. But dont medicate your creative away pleeeese. We love it and i am sure those grand babies do too. They sound like they are as hysterical as you. Get that camera out nana and make us some you tube stars outa em. Like that little Charlie bit my finger kid. Or the I don't like you mommy kid or the David after the dentist one. We need new ones and yours seem primed for their close up for sure.

Thank you this is what I call living. This is the life. My heart goes out to those grandparents that have no connection with their grandchildren. Some by choice and some made by idiot children that use those grandchildren as something to hold over the grandparents head so high they can't reach them. One day those children that we have that have chosen to leave us out of those babies little live's will look regret right in the eyeball.Can you imagine the unanswered questions those children will have for those parents who chose to exclude us from the life of a grandchild.I believe this state does not have grandparent rights. I may be wrong. I know one thing my girls gave this empty nest a whole new batch of eggs. I am so thankful.

I too want to thank you for the ray of sunshine on this otherwise dismal forum. I have one grandchild and could soooooo relate to this story. I would give mine a couple dollars, next time I saw her I asked what she did with it and she would say "Mommy used it for gas"!!! I knew better, but then I would turn to mommy and say why'd you take her money, to which she would just giggle her little head off. Anyways, thanks again!
