Recently, a 'plant-sitting' mom dropped some not-so-subtle (but very creative) hints that she wants grandchildren. And naturally, the netizens are loving her offbeat approach!
Recently, a woman asked her mom to look after some plants and ended up getting a series of photos dropping some not-so-subtle hints about wanting grandbabies.
Now, even though it's quite a common occurrence among parents and kids to argue about getting pregnant, but this mom truly aced the otherwise despicable conversation.
It's undoubtedly a euphoric trip watching a little human grow up from a crying, pants-pooping terror into a full-fledged adult popping out monsters of their own, so we can understand why so many people look forward to it as much as they do.
But Regan Speyer's mom raised the bar for everyone out there after being tasked with watching over her daughter's plants while she was gone for the weekend!
Sure, it's a pretty common approach for many parents to force their kids into having grandkids, but having a bit more refined approach is probably the best way to go.
Finesse means different things to different people, but for Regan's mom, it means being absolutely charming and hilarious!
Speyer has a collection of house plants that needed a little sun while she was out, so she asked her mother to simply open the blinds. However, little did Regan know that she was in for a rather hilarious surprise.
The mom continually sent photos of her taking care of her daughter's plants like a toddler and, we think that she was definitely dropping hints to her daughter about wanting a grandchild!
However, things didn't end there. Her mom likewise texted her stating how much she loved being a 'grandplantrent'. She arranged the plants in cute little scenarios, taking them out for strolls and seating them in front of the TV.
The message was clear and very strong: Wouldn't it be nice to have a few grand-kiddos to do all this stuff with?
Regan posted her hilarious conversation with her mother on Twitter. And naturally, it didn't take long for Regan's tweet to go viral, with tons of people calling out her mom for dropping the very heavy-handed hints. Plus everyone loved the term "grandplantrent" because let's be honest, it's pretty awesome.
Unsubtleties aside, seeing these plants get this much love is actually pretty cute. Just look at it on top of that slide, and the fact that she's reading to it is amazing!
Moreover, netizens were very vocal about their admiration for the mom's rather offbeat tactics with one user commenting "We all need someone like this."
Another user commented, "Smooth way asking for grandchildren," A third hilariously added, "She trying to give u hints sis," Well, all we can say is that Regan's mom definitely deserves a prize for transforming the otherwise awkward conversation into a fun one, for both her and her daughter. And we wish that her dream comes true very soon!
