To expect my DC's to behave 'nicely' when their grandparents are visiting?

Just had my PIL for tea and DS1(7) and DS2 (6) were little monkeys..

They weren't being really badly behaved they were just a bit loud and silly, (and ds1 got the hump when i wouldn't let him go on the playstation) they were playing up at the dinner table too ...

DH wasn't even here - he was at work, PIL asked if they could come round to us and collect the DC's from school with me - then they stayed to tea.

I just find it all a bit stressful, DD1 is 2 years and she is a bit of a handful and then i'm trying to cook shepherds pie and be sociable etc...

PIl are just so bloody polite and quiet and 'nice' - I always feel like we are so loud and rowdy with them! blush

Well, I think it is always exciting to have a grandparent over - think it is probably quite normal for children to "show-off" a bit in circumstances like that, is it not?
