I gave my grandma a parakeet for Mother's Day in 2008
A few weeks before,she had been recounting how she used to have canaries,and how nice it was to hear them in the morning
I was thinking,well canaries are $150 so that idea is out,but a parakeet is sweet too
She acted all happy when I gave him to her.
A week later,I go over there and his cage is on the floor,in the corner,covered with a towel.
I thought he died!
my mom said she was just about to call me. My Grandma told her to get rid of that "thing" or she was going to let it go free outside.
Apparently as soon as I left,she had gone on a rant about why would she want something like that? That it was the stupidest gift she had ever gotten
That birdie is now home with me. Happy and almost 6 years old

Ballard I think what she did was totally out of line. I have almost all the cards my kids have ever made me and the oldest is 28!. I love homemade things for special dates. To this day I tell my dd's that I'd prefer a homemade card/gift from my gk's instead of buying me a gift. They're so much more special. Hugs

Next question overall
Are you happy or sad when your kids have vacations from school?
