If you're a Grandma
Do you play with your grands when they come over, or at their house when you visit? Do you think it's important to have 'play time' or is it just the enjoyment of being a grandmother and the interaction during the visit should be enough? What do you do that might differentiate you from the 'other grandmother'? How often do you see your grands? Do they live close enough that you can drive or is it a flight away?
My youngest DD and I have different ideas of what grandparenting is and whether there should be expectations on the part of the parents. Should comparisons be made between grandparents, and verbally given back to them?
I have a very close relationship with this DD, but feel she is beginning to step on my toes when it comes to my relationship with the grands. Opinions, please!
