The story begins with a 65-year-old grandmother planning a two-week stay with her son and daughter-in-law in their new, larger home. This visit marks the first time Grandma will be staying with them, a departure from her usual choice of staying in a hotel.
One of the first challenges Grandma faces during her stay is navigating the differences in parenting styles between her and her daughter-in-law. The grandson, a three-year-old, is the center of attention, and Grandma quickly finds herself at odds with DIL over certain parenting decisions.
Grandma, with her years of experience, is quick to correct her grandson’s behavior when she deems it inappropriate. For instance, when the little one chews on stuffed animals, she intervenes with a firm “stop, don’t do that.” However, DIL disagrees, believing that this behavior is comforting for the child.
