... and a big hug from me Syberia.
As a MIL I was miles away when both GC were born but did get to visit for cuddles etc. Then DIL was persuaded by her Ma that she (Ma) should give up work to be their PAID childminder. I felt very 'side-lined' then, a feeling that persisted for years. I'm much more able to cope with the situation now But still wonder at what might have been as the other Granny had such strange ideas about what she fed them, for instance.
Sorry this is a bit 'off-topic' but you have had lots of lovely sensible Gransnetters advice, and I did want to add a different perspective, that is of the MIL.
