Grapes are a choking hazard

You all know that, right? Of course you do. So, would one of you mind telling that to my know-it-all Mother inlaw?

Lincoln LOVES grapes. And, as you all know, grapes are a HUGE choking hazard for toddlers. So, the other day I was cutting [and peeling] grapes for my sweet boy. My Mother inlaw says, "why are you cutting his grapes?"


Yeah, exactly.

So, I explain about them being a choking hazard. Her response? "Since When?"


And she wonders why we do not allow her to watch Lincoln. The woman clearly has serious issues. I go into a huge speech about WHY grapes are a choking hazard, and she still doesn't get it. She says, "well I don't think you have to cut them so small."


Thank you Mother inlaw for reassuring me that you are batshitcrazy.

  2. Lovely. James tested positive for peanut allergy a few months ago (although it could still be negative since it might have been caused by the zantac issues) but my mom TRIED TO GIVE HIM PEANUT BUTTER. I am fairly certain her head is filled with rocks. I have never left her alone with James nor will I ever. My MIL is so much better- I love her.
