The laugh was needed
Out of the mouth of babes
Happy mother's day to the OP
Who's Joe and what has he done that he needs a witness?
The OP provided an update in the comments saying:
DH called MIL back and she gave an offer for them to come over and do slip n slide and water balloons. I'm all for it because I get some time to myself to watch the new season of the great and a break. The kids will come home worn out and will go to bed easy tonight. I've stopped responding to her craziness and maintained boundaries and she's learned I don't give in or take the bait anymore. She knows if she gives a big negative reaction we will take a break until she calms down. (I know it isn't possible in all cases, but I have her "trained" for lack of a better term.)
No one wants to talk to Nana
The brutal honesty of kids is just top notch
Choosing to willingly ignore her
