Can any grans or granddads out there advise me how to subtly ask my son and dil if I can see more of my three month old grandson?
He is my first grandchild and I love him dearly but I am lucky if I get to see him once a fortnight even though they only live a ten minute's drive away.
I appreciate the fact that we are not welcome during the week as Harry goes to bed at 7 pm but I would dearly love to see him on weekends but they always seem to be too busy. I know for a fact that he sees his maternal granny on Saturdays, as well as a couple of lunchtimes during the week when my dil takes him to her mum's workplace.
That just leaves Sundays but then they are shopping or have friends round and we just have to see Harry when they have a free hour. I really don't understand it as I always though that we were a close family. Suddenly I feel shut out and don't know what to do with all the love that I feel for my little grandson.
