We have some lovely grand kids and from time to time I get a really good photograph. The one below I used on our family calendar for 2014 with the caption – ‘HOW ABOUT A KISS COUSIN’ – Harlo is on the left and Sienna on the right. ‘Put it into a baby competition’, said a friend. So, I searched around to find one that I thought was suitable – until I got to the filling in details part.
Please tick a box – my choice was – Single Mum; Single Dad, Two Mums; Two Dads; Step-Mum; Step-Dad; Partners; Other.
What happened to the two parent family – shouldn’t that come first? At the risk of being dubbed old fashioned, I object to the term ‘Partners’ being used for a husband and wife – a partner is who you play a game with; dance with or maybe run a business with. I suppose as a grandparent I am ‘Other’.
Needless to say, this picture did not get posted in the competition.
