What Would Mrs. D Say?

Dear Mrs. D,

I can’t stand my mother-in-law.  She is constantly in my business telling me how to be a better parent to my boys and I think I’m already doing a great job. Help.  I am going to say something I regret if she doesn’t leave me alone.

-I’m already awesome

Dear I’m Already Awesome,

Oooo..yes, a bossy mother-in-law is never good.  Here’s what I would do.  Plan a night out with your husband.  Let your MIL take over at home (she seems to like doing that) and go enjoy yourself.  Then she can spend time with her grandkids and you can enjoy some adult time with your husband. Make sure you have a glass bottle of wine to relax. If she insults your parenting when you get home you can emphasize the importance of date night and book her again for next week.  See, it’s a win-win?

Dear Mrs. D,

How the heck can you get a jelly bean out of a child’s ear without going to the doctor? Please answer ASAP!

-What? I can’t hear you.

Dear What? I Can’t Hear You,

I’d try laying him on his side with the jelly bean side down first.  With any luck it will fall out but if it doesn’t, he probably deserves a little smack on the head. That should do it.  

Mrs. D


Dear Mrs. D,

I hate balloons.  They cause so much drama.  Our favorite restaurant gives one to my daughter every time we eat there.  I don’t know what the deal is but she has accidentally let it go the few times and cried all the way home.

-Balloon Sadness


Dear Balloon Sadness,

I totally hear you on balloons and drama.  They either pop, fly away or get stuck on a ceiling at our house.  Here’s what I’d do.  Let her enjoy that balloon during dinner but in the parking lot, you make a wish and let that balloon go on PURPOSE.  Ya know..so her wish comes true.  (wink-wink-nudge-nudge)

-Mrs. D
