    How do you not :smack your SIL? You must have some very good will power!

    That is no way to teach kids, thank goodness they have you granny. I've told my son if he doesn't learn how to do cooking and cleaning he will never find a good girlfriend. It should 50/50 in my book. Both chip in to run the house as equals.

    preaching to the choir with me gal. I'm a firm believer in strong women.

    both grandma's whupped me pretty good when I misbehaved!!!

    my dad's mom raised three kids on her own

    my mom had to deal with me

    my wife home schools 6 kids, ages 1.2 to 14.

    I know how strong women can be.

    She'll get up on her own, don't worry. She's going to lose weight, so don't worry about that either. It's natural. If she poops in the nest then just gently remove the eggs and add a layer of fresh bedding, then put the eggs back. Easy peasy.

    Broodies are very low maintenance.

    yes ma'am bless her.

    not just for the fact that she home schools 6 kids, or even the fact that she went through 6 pregnancies and deliveries, but bless her for the fact she has to deal with a 225lb big kid every day, and still love me at the end of it.

    LOL its not from lack of wanting to trust. He would old the kids back I am sure. this way they still learn what they need to know. DD home schooled too. til just when they moved here . I insisted they get to school. they are loving it. doing well. One child is behind and I suspect has some problems but overall doing good. they were never taught certain things in history but are learning now.
