Hi. Have followed discussions for ages but this is the first time I have started a discussion so here goes. I have two darling grandchildren that I love beyond measure. I am blessed in that they live literally round the corner. Grace is nearly 4. She is clever, funny, adorable, self willed, determined and bloody minded. Tom is just one. Walks everywhere and never stops. Both are utterly exhausting and never sit still for a moment. We have them for a full day once a fortnight and Grace sleeps over the night before. We also have them fairly often on other days as well. So far so good. Why am I telling you this?. Next week my DD and SiL are going to America for their 10th anniversary for 6 days and leaving the babies with me and hubby. And I am dreading it. I have taken some leave and DH is trying to work around around it. They will be in nursery for a couple of days, but we will have them most of the time and neither of them sleeps. I know it's not for long but, oh dear!!!! Any words of comfort and encouragement would be so welcome! The other GPs live a long way away so can't help. Thank you
I'm sick to death of it - anyone else?
What on earth do I do? - too close to Christmas
I don't understand this trend - AIBU?
