I recently had 3 more grandkids come live with me. Its a big adjustment to us and not sure how the oldest is going to respond to all this as she has been the only child for 10 years.

Can you include her in the process, maybe praise her for being so responsible (e.g. fetching wipes or a clean diaper etc)? Perhaps treat the situation in a similar fashion as though she were the older sibling with new babies... it may also lessen the load on you- 4 children in your care seems a heavy workload. I do not know the circumstances surrounding your caring for 4 grandchildren fulltime, but you are an amazing woman for doing it.
