Southern Hospitality


We have both sets of parents visiting this weekend.

Before the out-of-town guests arrived, we told Cameron that he was going to have to give up his bedroom for the weekend. "O-tay," he agreed before he found out that that meant that someone else was going to be sleeping his bed.

"No," he said matter-of-factly.

To make a long story short, Cameron started out in our bed last night. At midnight, when my husband started exhibiting clear signs of having the stomach flu, I moved him to the floor next to our bed. In the morning, I found him sleeping in his own bed.

My poor sixty-five year-old dad was sleeping on the floor next to my son's bed.

"What happened?" I asked.

Evidently, around three in the morning, my dad was startled out of a deep slumber by an angry someone yanking on his arm.

"Get out!" that someone yelled.

Fearing for his life, my dad did what he was told.

I love this!

Only a grandparent would agree to give up the bed for the child.

With your in -laws visiting, why am I starting to get my humor all ready for another, "I flashed the in laws" Story? ...

Guess you'd better give up YOUR bed for tonight. Hope he doesn't have back problems.

When my brother and I were little we thought of it as a huge treat to get in our sleeping bags and sleep in the living room (even if guests weren't around). Maybe your son is still too young to be convinced of this.

My daughter tries to charge her relatives "reasonable rent" for use of her room. It's a great way for my 10yr old to embarrass me. She has only been paid in gum so far.

It's too bad there are so many snakes in your backyard. Otherwise, I'd say set up a tent and send the kiddos outside!

What a good grandpa!
