She gets its a joke at first but then he keeps on it and on it and on it until everyone is ready to choke him lol. Like tonight he kept taking something she had and puttig it in his pocket saying he was going to take it home. She played along until it got past the point of being funny to her and was just making her sad and she just said "please grandpa can I have it back" in the saddest little voice and he then stopped an gave it back to her but seriously this happened DOZENS of times today.
My uncle used to do this to me all the time. And I don't EVER remember my parents stepping up and telling him to knock it the eff off - the only way it ended was for me to have a temper tantrum. (I am not and have never been a very patient person lol.) He would tease and tease and tease until I was in meltdown mode and then *I* would get in trouble. So, on behalf of Hannah, I say thank you, for at least trying to keep him from being an ass.

I honestly think you should video him doing it and then play it back for him - if he flat out refuses to listen to you and it's really bothering you it might get through to him. Regardless, ((((hugs)))) and patient ****vibes**** cause it sounds like you need both.

yeah I'm really tempted to do the video thing lol

We were out for lunch today and Hannah had to go potty so while it was just her and I in there I took the opportunity to talk about the way grandpa was acting. I just told her "I know Grandpa keeps teasing you and it's not very nice of him to do that but we also can't throw tantrums because he is being mean. When he does that just tell him no thank you grandpa or ask him to please stop teasing you."

He wont' listen to me but I think if maybe she says it he might get the idea that it's not nice. So when we went back out he started in on the "I'm going to eat all your candy when we get home" nonsense and Hannah was a champ and said "No thank you grandpa. that would make me sad and then I would cry grandpa" and he backed off on that one but he's still being a pest and she just keeps telling him "no thank you grandpa, that's not nice" lol

I think Hannah has more patience now at 4 years old than I have at 26. LOL. What an awesome kid you have.

She is a great kid. I wish I could take credit lol but really she is just a nautrally mild and good hearted little girl. Although her patience level is subjective lol. When we were hardboilig eggs for decorating I think it must have been the longest 10 minutes of her life and consequently the longest 10 minutes of my life LOL

I'd leave your computer open to this page and let the fun ensue but I spent the day with the bfs family who does the cant stand you thing one day and why are you not calling me the next. Ugh. Feel for you. My dads so laid back I think he'd get a hotel to stay out of our way( but he lives close)
Lol my cousin does her Easter shopping in Northern NY every year for her kids, but we're only about an hour and a half away, depending on how fast you get through the border. She also goes about three times a year to get some groceries, but it's stuff you can't buy here (vanilla coke, certain types of chips, etc)

There are full out bus tour shopping trips here to go across the border and shop till you drop! I rarely do myself, unless I am across anyways and see a deal...
