My Mother – The Grandmother From Hell

I’m rather looking forward to the day I become a grandmother. It’s a revenge thing actually.

For years I’ve been threatening my kids with: “I hope you have children just like you”.

Grandmothers have it so good – they can spoil the kids until they misbehave and then hand them back.

My mother is not my friend anymore – she’s switched camps – she’s now the kids’ ally instead of mine.

When I had my first child she was always there to lend a hand to a sleep-deprived and overwhelmed young mum struggling to find her way.

But the woman has betrayed me. She tells my children all the rotten things I did when I was their age and thus gives them ammunition to use against me.

I simply can’t trust her any more – she actually showed the kids my old school report cards and sat there giggling with them over some of the teachers’ comments.

But I have my revenge now – I pinned this notice to her corkboard:

On July 18, 1994 Rossanna Della Corte of Canino, Italy became the oldest woman to give birth – she was 63 years old at the time.
