I became a nan 9 months ago. I cannot believe how I feel about this small child. I was unfortunate enough to suffer with post natal depression when I had my daughter 30 years ago. Sadly this was not addressed by anybody at the time so I suffered for 10 months not really being that interested in my baby. Luckily it did lift and things improved. With my grand daughter it has been instant love and I just adore her. I see her regularly and just spoil her I can't help it. I do sometimes wonder if maybe I'm trying to make up for what happened with my own daughter all those years ago although maybe I would have still been the same. For me it has been the best thing that has come into my life. Whoops I sound a bit soppy not intentional.
