Living with our son has been 'interesting' over the years. On the eve of his birthday in July, he gave us a present....a three and half year old granddaughter!
I won't go into all the details here. Let's just say it was a bit of a shock.
Miss C comes with a 15 month old brother, who, although not ours biologically, we will also regard as our grandchild.
We got to meet them recently when they came for a few days with their mum. I think all were nervous at first, but by the end we had relaxed. I loved playing with them. I had shopped for toys, books and games. So it was bubbles and stories and watering the garden and kickball all round.
Out of respect to mum's wishes, I won't be showing their faces. I will be altering my profile so show grandmother status and this post is to explain that sudden change.
I've already 'knocked the socks' off some friends.
We hope to be able to continue to have a relationship with them and enjoy watching them grow up.
