Hi, we see less of our grankids now too. Eldest is now 14, (got a tach and deep voice and everything), We used to look after them a lot, but the eldest is the only one I could play with on the floor, take him out in the footwell of my scooter, I miss all that. His sister is 11 and so quiet now…her mum says she`s hormonal. But when she does visit she hardly says 2 words, despite my efforts to think of things she may be interested in.
Our other 2 are completely different. The 4 year old, wants me to draw, play and teach her silly songs, have cuddles in bed and the 11 year old wants me to teach her how to sew,
We still get overnight visits when mum is working during school holidays.
But as much as we love to see them, we do find it harder work now and dont cope as well as we did.
I hope they will keep the good memories of yesteryear. I do.
