7 Reasons Your Kids Should Move in With Your Mother


Moms are great. They really are. But sometimes you need someone different. Ok, most of the time. I go to my grandma’s. You may go to your grandma’s too.

Here are some reasons why I think grandmas are better than moms.

Sugar: Ahma (that’s what I call my grandma) always has candy for me, but Mommy makes me eat healthy stuff like corn and carrots.

Bedtime: Mommy tries to get me in bed by 8:00. Ahma tries to get me in bed by 10:00.

Fun: Moms are pretty fun ... but grandmas are a lot more fun.

Television: Mommy says no TV on school days, but Ahma says otherwise.

iPhone: Mommy won’t let me play on hers (though if I knew her passcode I would anyway), but Ahma always has games ready for me and my little sister to play.

Toys: Ahma has lots of toys for me, but Mommy doesn’t have as many.

Rules: Mommy has lots of rules, but Ahma doesn’t have that many.

Those are my reasons that grandmas can be a lot better than moms -- and no offense to moms out there. You’ll be a grandma someday.

The moms at The Stir desperately needed a day off so we decided to let our kids help us write The Stir today -- find out more about them in their blogger profiles and see what they are writing about at Kids Takeover. Happy April Fools! :)

My kids would agree 100%!

Not my mom, she's got Alziemer's and lives with a crazy bitch who thinks pizza and Coke are good healthy meals and that calling CPS with lies is helpful. Lol, suck.

Oh but the reason grandma's are so great is because they do those things knowing they can just pass baby back to you after it's had all those sweets and stayed up late.

Lol it's true. My daughter loves going to her Mawmaw's because "it's way funner there."
