Move over boys, Granny's moving in!
13 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Danny is happy that is newly divorced, retired mother is coming for a visit. If you watched Season 1, you'll remember that the actress playing his mother was much younger. I actually liked her better. This actress was way to cliché for my taste. I didn't seem Danny's mother with this kind of personality. By the way, did you also notice how Jessie's parents just sort of drifted off into nothingness, never to be seen or heard from again (as far as I can remember)?

So Danny think he'll be doing the right thing by making her feel welcome. They trash the house (neatly, of course) and really make Grandma's day! She's so happy, in fact, that she decides to move in. Now, not only does Danny have to find a way to tell her she's not wanted to live under their roof, but that he doesn't like brussel sprouts!

And Oh no! Michelle has now climbed out of her crib. It's time to ditch it for a brand new bed. Oh, how I remember that time. It was a bittersweet moment when my son did that very thing, and I remember the same rule: You climb it, you lose it! I just love the relationship Jessie and Michelle have. So sweet...
