My children are grown and have there own family's. They never come to see me and bring the grandkids. Or call. They only call or come over when they need money or to help them with something. And they complain that we don't come see them or call them. 'm afraid that if I call they will ask me for money. Or they just want me to keep the kids over night. And I don't think that is right. I have raised my children and now is the time for me to enjoy the rest of my life. I don't want to be a babysitter. I know that they have there life and I don't want to go to there home all the time. But they know that they can come to my home anything, and bring the grandkids. I LOVE my GRANDKIDS! And If they play baseball games or football games or dancing I love going to see them. But I don't like it when they say thing like I don't love them cause I don't come see them or let them stay the night all the time. Its hard on grandmas that have 7 + grandkids to do that. I think my children should come to see us and bring the grandbaby's with them to visit. Or they could call and invite us to come over for dinner and visit. You know all family's are not the same. We are all different. Just because the grandparents don't do what children think they should do does not mean that they don't LOVE there GRANDCHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't wait for them to call you. Call them and invite them over and make memories with them. Maybe they don't want to bother you now that you have your own family now.
