I do love being a granny but am finding it so much harder than mummying. I don't think its just because I am older. My daughters are happy for me to discipline little peeps, they seem to recall I was fair, mostly, with them and think my values and standards are good. Trouble is, I want to be nice granny, not the one who puts them on the naughty step etc whilst Mummy watches (and sometimes clearly disagrees but doesn't want to rock the boat). I am ashamed to say that sometimes I am too strict but I am so tired because I work and have a few health issues although nothing major and just want some peace and quiet. I provide some childcare (12hrs a week) and see them most days. What do others think?
