I have a colleague who is always smug, she curled her nose up when my DD got divorced, yes it was a shame but shit happens.
Her children are more beautiful and more gifted than anyone else's, as is her grandchild.
At lunch time today I remembered a bit of video I'd taken of my 2 year old DGD Suzy, I took it because she was singing.
I played it to a colleague and Mrs Smug wanted to see too. She was most upset to hear that Suzy could sing, I explained that Suzy sings loudly and tunelessly.
She asked how old Suzy is, she was 2 a couple of weeks ago, Mrs Smug's DGC is 8 months older.
It seems Mrs Smug's DGC doesn't sing, probably because his parents don't sing. My DD sings around the house as do I, my SIL was in a band and also sings, Suzy's older sisters sing to her.
To add insult to injury Suzy was scribbling away as she sang. Mrs Smug was even more aggrieved, her DGC cannot hold a pencil, let alone draw.
Suzy draws because her sisters do and they let her join in, they also play schools and make her sit at the table with paper and crayons.
She isn't Picasso, she only scribbles, mainly circles, but still Mrs Smug is annoyed, oh good.
