My mother loved her grandchildren and enjoyed their visits. They were always special times for the kids and also for her. Since she was still teaching when they were born they usually did weeks in the summer when the would stay with her in Longview.
She adored the calls and letters from them. I don’t think she would be too happy with texting, but then again they were her grandchildren. I say all of this to say that she would always tell me that she was not a rocking grandma and that she would call when she wanted to see them. This meant if you need a babysitter, you better hire one.
I am my mother’s child. I love my grandson. I try to make each time we are together special. This week we are doing Vacation Bible School together. Do I keep him every week–I am not a rocking grandma, but I love that little man and want every occasion special.

I hear that, and am in total agreement. Of course my granddaughter lives in the Bronx, NY so I don’t have that problem. But even if we lived in the same city, a babysitter would need to be hired–unless I offered my service. � Edwina
