Unregistered She's the only granddaughter.

I've recently just let my little one dress herself, which has created some interesting outfits, to say the least. Unless they buy a new outfit, she won't let her change her during the day so it's become less of an issue.

Mister Sir Husband Ok.. so this is a bit childish, but dress her in what you feel is appropriate and in the bag put the most hideous mismatched outfit you can scrape together. Something you wouldn't feel comfortable dressing her in.. even if she were going to be hanging out with blind people.. (like I said, childish .. but is kinda the mood I am in today)

kindertouch Is she the first grand daughter? I think she just want to spoil her and enjoys dressing your daughter every time.

Unregistered we have a good relationship- I'm probably closer to her than my own mother who lives out of state. We just have our moments, like you do with any other relative. One helpful thing is that my husband is really great- he really stands up for me and speaks up when there are issues.

itlw8 glad you asked. I find my dil and I have a much better relationship than I had with my mil. mostly because we talk about things... yes it was rough at first she thought I did not like her because I did not hug.... We are great friends now. Gotta stick together we are out numbered my the men and boys.

Unregistered no, I don't smoke. I know what you're getting at, but the clothes she's changing her into are coming from the diaper bag I send, so if I did, they would stink too. I actually asked her about it today when I picked up, and she said she was visiting a relative and just wanted my daughter to look cute and felt that the other outfit was nicer. Ok, fair enough- I guess she just wants to show off. I guess that's kind of sweet.

I almost laugh dressing her on Wednesday mornings because I know it's not even going to matter. It really shouldn't bother me, it's a tiny thing. Overall, she's a great grandmother and a good MIL, it's just bizarre!!
Oh, that IS strange...

ColorfulSunburst take it easy. Say to her "thank you" and something like "you are a great grandmother". That's what she needs for.

Unregistered Do you smoke by any chance?

Sorry, just wanted to vent
I think jammies are a great idea! I bet grandma just wants to spoil her. - I'm assuming these are clothes that grandma got for her?
