Funny, earthwalker! I tried having my little one tell my grandma that his baby is going to sleep in his crib and now he sleeps in a big boy bed...she totally didn't understand him though.
I talked to my aunt last night, she has five kids, and she said my grandmother's always said you are only as happy as your unhappiest child. So I'm just increasing my chances for unhappiness, I suppose. My grandma's adult children have had a hard time in life for some reason, so that perspective really helped me understand her reaction. I'm just sorry she's so sad.
