Introducing My Mother-In-Law

It hasn’t been very fair that I’ve only picked on my mother in my blog posts.  FringeMan’s mom deserves equal time to shine.  Since it’s her birthday today, I figured there’s no better time to introduce you to my mother-in-law than today. 

From here on out, I will refer to her as GrammyFringe.  (Sorry, but creative FringeNames are sparse and I’m beginning to confuse myself.)

I am fully aware that this post can go one of two ways; I remain the beloved daughter-in-law or I become the evil out-law. 

For the sake of my future, I will tread lightly.

I consider myself blessed not to have any awful mother-in-law stories.  I can only say kind things about GrammyFringe.  She’s always been good to me and instantly made me part of her family.  That’s why it’s so sad that I have to ruin this tight-knit relationship by posting this next picture; however, I’ve been saving it for years.  Even when her brothers begged me to put it on facebook, I kindly refrained.

BUT today is a special day and being so many miles away, I feel the need to celebrate in a special way.

I’m not trying to point out any resemblance or anything…NO  Way!

GrammyFringe doesn’t take prozac.

Grammy & the FringeKids

GrammyFringe we love you and wish you a very Happy Birthday with many more to come, each better than the last.

Thanks for being a A+ mother-in-law!

By the way, incase you’re wondering and I know you are, GrammyFringe’s hair has held the same volume since her 8th grade yearbook picture.  To the grandchildren, it remains one of life’s greatest mysteries.

GrammyFringe, forgive me for the sake of the grandkids…..please.

    Happy Birthday to the FringeGram! I re-named her, but she clearly has an awesome sense of humor and is just a generally good person, so she won’t mind!

    You are so lucky to have such a great relationship with your MIL 🙂

    What a fun post! Isn’t it great to have a really good mother-in-law. I’ve been so blessed with one too. Happy Birthday Grammyfringe!

    Happy Birthday Grammie!

    God bless you! I knew you must have been terrific ’cause you raised FringeMan (that couldn’t have been easy). Now I know how sweet and beautiful you are.

    Thanks, FringeGirl! Wonderful post!

    Girl, Grammie and I both know the secret…Aquanet and tons of it! From one “young” broad to another…Happy Birthday, Grammie!!!
    P.S. Just remember, what goes around, comes around and there are bound to be money shots of you just waiting to be published.

      Oh, I know my turn is coming and when it does, I will pay dearly!

      For the time being, GrammyFringe is still speaking to me….for the sake of the children, of course. 😉

    When she’s not doing her Maxine impersonation, GrammyFringe is a beautiful lady! You must have a great relationship with her. Happy birthday, GrammyFringe!

    Awww, I thought the first picture was going to be of you – but it’s Fringekid! That’s okay, it’s still a great picture!!!!!

    I’m sure she will forgive you!! I love the curlers picture though!

    Very nice birthday post!
