That is so nice that you have a great relationship with your granddaughters. That is what made the situation easier when I had so many living with me for a while. I am not unhappy with the way I raised mine but I am older and wiser now and find I can contribute some things to the grandkids' lives that are worth while and they seem to love the special attention.

As much as I love and enjoy the kids, I am getting tired of the "custodial" end of childcare. Diapers get changed by parents all the time now. The same with feeding and general wiping up. I spent years doing all those things with mine and GK's and now I just want to quit.

My TO DO list is loaded today so I had better get to it. Also my granddaughter needs a bandaid. Have a great day!
