Mothers...

Don't know if legit but if it is my respect...

Tags: grandma
Not many people understood why Monica Smith began
working on her 8x10 shed in the back MEM and then
laughed when = realized she was turn g
cabin. It seemed strange that she was putting '.
much effort into = a shed. am it wasn' t just a hobby.
Her youngest daughter and 5 children lost their home.
So, Monica decided to give them her own and move out
to the back yard.
This may be the coolest grandmother ever.
She was able to transform an 8x10 toolshed into a livable
home.
It had an adorable full kitchen.
There was even cupboard space.
On the other side of the cabin is the living room. It' s hard
to believe that a shed could fit so much furniture.
Once you go upstairs, you' ll see a bedroom.
Inside there is room for a bed, plus a table and
closet.
The outside is not yet shed, but the inside is amazing!
Monica didn' t even hire contractors to help her
complete this project. She did all of the work herself,
only getting some assistance from her children and
grandchildren.
Monica Smith, you win the Grandmother of the Year
award.

Why would you have 5 kids if you're that unable to care for them.

I feel like I'd bang my head every 30 minutes if I lived there.

why wouldn't her grandchildren allow her to stay in her own house

little does everyone know, she didn't hire a contractor because she was already a trained contractor.

It's too small to be legal to live in with five kids. There's one bed for Christ's sake. Don't get me wrong, it's a kind gesture but imagine five kids in there. It would be hell. There isn't even room for five kids to sleep. You gonna put five kids in one bed? Those kids would be learning how to play doctor within days. There's a reason there are laws in place for this. Now I understand maybe letting the kids have their own space so they feel like they have a place but that place is just a sardine can

That's pretty cool and nice and all. But couldn't she just've invited them to live with her instead? I'm sure having a grandma that capable around the house wouldn't really be a problem...

would be cooler if tiny houses weren't a common thing.

I'm just having a bit of a rough time believing she goes up and down those "stairs" daily.
Most grandparents look like they can't get into a tall vehicle without losing a hip.

But then again, some of them are in better shape than I am.

If said grandmother had a child at 20, then it is possible she is between 40-50 years of age at this point. And if she did the majority of the work fixing up the place, that is a lot more laborious than going up the ladder/stairs 2-3 times daily.

Everyone is different based on their conditions and habits, but personally my father was a contractor from the time he left Vietnam until now. He's on oxygen, but I just lost my home due to a sudden lay off of employment, and that old 71 year old man completely renovated the basement. It's much nicer than the place I was living, even. He can't do a lot, but he works away slowly like a stead fast oxen. He just never quits, and should have passed away years ago, surviving a dangerous position in Nam, 3 different kinds of cancer, and a lung collapse.. But some people refuse to take 'no' for an answer and set their own standards.

Here's to grand parents and parents everywhere who have big hearts. I'm 20, the world is cruel on us all, and my aging parents don't have long to live. Love them while you can. I'm racing to finish a BA degree/medical school before they expire. "Your time here was not wasted. I love you, and this is what I have become because of you. You were not always perfect parents, but I was never a perfect child. Thank you for raising and not giving up on me."
