Re: being a grandparent when grand kids get their own life

Message 1 of 2

Aw, that's a bummer.  Have you talked to your kids (their parents) about it at all?   Maybe if you guys could schedule something a little more in advance, it would help.  


And/or could you get the 8 year old for an activity here or there?   They are generally less busy than teens.   But yes, this is prime time for kids to be super-busy.
