Guilt On A Onesie

with 2 comments

When our kids were first born, my mother in law stayed with us for 3 months. When it was first arranged, although it was great to anticipate the help, I feared the typical ‘Darin/Endora’ interplay and tension, and on more then one occasion I actually think I heard her mutter ‘Derwood’ under her breath. But in all honesty, it was more than a saving grace, so much so that we added her name to our daughter’s name. And when she was due to leave, having made a big deal of her callous abandonment of her grandchildren, I wanted to make sure she didn’t do so without a final pang of guilt. All in fun of course.

So with the help of a color printer and iron-on decal paper, I produced this set of ‘onesies’ for the kids to wear on her final day.

  1. Grandparents and guilt – what a great combination. A few years ago I was trying to convince Bev’s parents that they should help us get a new bigger car – for the grandkids of course. Did not fly, but I tried.

  2. It’s amazing… even though your kids are crying so hard on those decals, they are still somehow the cutest kids I’ve ever seen!!
