She gave ds, who is not talking, a present and a birthday card which showed a mouse and a dinosaur. Inside she had written "fun questions, also for ds's sisters: What does the mouse say to the dinosaur? And what does the dinosaur say to the mouse?"

So I read this to the dd's, ds obv not capable to respond to it. The dd's looked at me blankly, not knowing what to make of it. Pipes up this mum: "what no answers? My dd had hundreds of funny ideas"

She is strange.
She once gave me a packet of nappies, opened and some gone, because he dd had grown out of them. I said thank you, of course. She then said "Because x many nappies are missing you only have to give me y amount of money"

Revised opinion - jam nappy on her head - then give her a slap. Then take a picture and post it on mn!

JulesJules · 20/06/2008 20:44

Then sell her half a pack of tissues. She is clearly bonkers.

cheesesarnie · 20/06/2008 20:45

what a twit.she sounds odd.

onepieceoflollipop · 20/06/2008 20:46

Say to her I am giving you the card back as it wasn't suitable for ds! Please may we have the money instead?

Odd lady, just wanted to show off that in her opinion her dcs are somehow superior. Probably quite an insecure lady too.

Flashman · 20/06/2008 20:58

????? another considered view MT?

emkana · 20/06/2008 21:00

because it's not nice, it's the pointscoring of a competitive mother

"look how creative and inventive my child is, wot yours aren't???"
