I love watching my dgc. I'm very open to doing as much as I'm able. There will come a day when they don't need minding, etc. So I cherish every moment I get now.
But, then again, dd doesn't take my help for granted. Asks in advance, accepts if I have to say no, for some reason, etc. Perhaps I would be resentful otherwise, idk.
Also, I must admit, when I hear about gps who have been cut out of their gc's lives, including many on this site, it makes me feel lucky that I get to see and babysit mine.
Rosie, it seems to me, there are two extremes - gps whose ac/cil constantly expect and demand babysitting vs, gos who have been wholly co. Most of us gps are somewhere in the middle.
