My first grandchild (little girl) was born late February , I'm overwhelmed with love for her and want to see as much of her as I can, and am eager to help my Son and Daughter-in-law as much as possible.
I've offered to have her for a few hours to give them a break but they seem reluctant. They haven't had much help since the birth,(despite offers) they are very independent and seem to want to do everything themselves.
While I admire this I worry that they are making things so much harder for themselves by not taking a break and letting me help.
What do other Grans think? I'm conscious that it's not my daughter so am treading very carefully . I'd appreciate some advice from experienced Grans out there!
