Definition of confronting...

...Twin feeding in front of your elderly European father who is visiting from Melbourne for a few days.

Just to remind you, twin feeding looks like this (note: this is not me - I'm not up for my breasts splayed all over the internet yet):

Dad wanted to come for a week. 'Just come for three days,' I insisted. 'If you want to come for longer, I'll buy you another plane ticket.'

'No, no, it is a week that I want to come,' he says.

I booked him flights for three days, saying he could extend it if he wanted.

Yesterday (after three scream-filled days) I dropped him at the station.

'I think that is a good length of time that I was here,' he said.

'Good,' I said. 'I'll book you some more tickets. When do you want to come again?'

'Maybe next year,' he said.

The best part of being a grandparent is handing them back and loving them long distance. My Granddaughter turns 15 next week but I still remember every minute of the day she was born.
