Helphelphelp - agreed back in February to babysit 3 and 1 year old granddaughters from Friday to Sunday while Son and DIL attend a distant wedding. The playdate weekend is coming up fast. It now occurs to me - not a moment too soon, you might think - that I haven't looked after a 1 year old on my own since 1988, and that I never did get on all that well with under 5's. These children don't really know me. I rarely see them. This is a disaster. What was I thinking. Why on earth did I agree. Heart rate rising. Too late to cancel. Apart from taking deep breaths, what do I do now?
Irritating personality traits haven't softened - do friendships change?
Needed but feeling left out - do others feel the same?
Where were you on this day? - moon landing
