I am the grandmother of four. Two of my grandchldren, both girls, age 11 and 14 live with their parents in the same town as I do. I use to "babysit" them often when they are younger....but not anymore since the oldest is 14, almost 15. I miss doing that, but then I seem to be getting older, and don't have as much energy as I use to have, so maybe it's just as well.

My other two grandchildren are the victums of divorce. My Ex DIL divorced my son 2 years ago. She was tired of being married and wanted to be free to do her own thing. She tricked my good son into getting full custody of their 2 children, now a boy of 8, and a girl of 11. She now works in Arizona,...which is a 1100 mile trip by car for my son to see his children. They were married for 12 years. I get to see these 2 grandchildren about twice a year. I cannot call them, as their mother leaves her answering machine on all the time....even my son has a tough time talking to his children.

I'm glad to have my two in town here with me.
