On the 24th every year, we have over my wife's family. Her mom passed away years ago, so it's her dad and his lady friend, and her sister's family. All had been fine for years until she had her first kid. That BRAT is almost 5 now, but as a baby and toddler, she was an out of control screaming little shithead. That one was bad enough, now they have twin boys that are now about a year and a half old. Those two make the first one seem like an angel, they are either screaming, screeching, or just crying IN STEREO! So the oldest fearing being out done, has reverted back to babbling and screaming to get attention and their parents just ignore it. All the while, my father-in-law is belly laughing over how cute they all are and mimics them and laughs even more. It goes on like that for HOURS!!!! It doesn't end until we close the front door, and we can still hear them before they drive away. I have two kids of my own, and they can't stand it! The days of having a peaceful Christmas dinner with family is only a memory until these out of control brats grow up at some point??
