We make things with Lego, read together, make food and eat together, bath time and then more reading and cuddles. What's,nt to love about having grandchildren. If I had known how wonderful they are, I would have had them first!

I have always loved to see my grandchildren but, these days love to see them on Whatsapp. We have a family thread where the grandchildren send me photos and talk about their days. It's brilliant.

Having had three lovely daughters my first and so far only grandchild is a boy. So enjoy having a grandson around and he is growing up to be a lovely thoughtful and kind young man. Glad to say he sees me as the person to play games and share stories with and keeps the energetic side of him for his parents. Think it safe to say we have a special relationship because he still willing to give me kisses and a hug!

I do not have a grandchild, but I have two very precious great nieces who are amazing. They come out with the funniest stories, are always ready to listen to a story or two. I have extra time now and love to spoil them.

My first Grandson was born prematurely and was very small so a lot of time spent just looking at him and willing him to survive makes for a very special bond.
