My daughter, her husband and my three gorgeous grandchildren ages 4, 3 and 11 months, will be visiting for Christmas soon. I could use some advice here....
When they visited for Thanksgiving for five days, and on previous visits, my daughter pretty much leaves everything up to me and/or her husband, when he comes up with them, in regards to her children. I enjoy and love my grandkids very very much, but would rather have my time with them spent laughing and playing... not disciplining and cleaning up after them. Am I wrong to think she should take care of their meeses and stuff? When she is here she sits and reads or naps 85% of the time. I do not know how to tell her to do the mom thing so I can enjoy the Grandma thing. She is quick to anger, and I am afraid that if I do not do this correctly she may get angry and withhold the kids from me altogether. I live 300 miles from the grandkids and only get to see them a few times a year as it is.
