I just want to say a big hello to everyone on Gransnet. I am so pleased to find this site. Im a first time Grandma to a gorgeous little boy of 3 weeks. My emotions have been all over the place since he has been born. The baby is my son's and his partner. Obviously I am now the MIL figure but after reading the forums Mums and daughters have difficulties too. I know its early days but my son's partner has been a bit possessive over the baby so far but I am really trying to be understanding. Hopefully things will settle down in time. smile

Hello Mamgu758, nice to meet you, and congratulations on becoming a grandma smile. I think you'll find Gransnet will be a real help to you about how you're feeling and all the jumble of emotions that will be hitting you and and your son's partner. Looking forward to seeing more of your posts.

Congratulations, mamgu. Isn't it amazing what our emotions do when a grandchild arrives! But just think, if it does that to us, it must be ten times as much for the mum. Precious times. Enjoy smile

Hi Marelli...congratulations. Your grandson is only 3 weeks, give it time, it's very new to you son and DIL. Just keep in contact with them and they will soon learn to appreciate and trust another adult who is keen to be involved. wink
