I have 4 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren, adore them all but they tire me out.

I have two grandchildren, aged 2 and 4.  They live in Wales, about two and a half hours drive from our home.  We go to visit about once a month and stay for three of four nights, looking after them during the day whilst their Mom and Dad go to work.  They sometimes visit us inbetween times.  I love seeing them and really enjoy playing with them, visiting the park, going on walks, playing on the beach and introducing them to my favourite crafts. I don't realise how tired I am until I get home and then am thankful for time to recharge my batteries!

I know what you mean, we forget we havnt the same energy levels as when our own children were young, and now the grandchildren have given me great grandchildren so feel tired just knowing they are coming to see me.

Well Tina and I have our two grandchildren aged 3.5 and 6.5 full time since the death of our son three years ago. It is very tiring and also hard at times but well worth it in the end.

Having had to pack up in Spain two and a half years ago and come back and go through all the paper work and court proceedings for nine months to gain a Special Guardianshp after mother had the children taken from her and has never tried to see them again.

we are settled now and in a routine, Im in bed at 9pm,lol

Well xmas has gone and I bet our pockets got emptied, but it is worth it.

Thats awful, when they forget  about the cuddles and love they had when they were little, I tell mine off and they still come back for more.

These days I'm lucky and see my granddaughters most weeks.  They are nearly 2 and 5 and it's lovely to see them growing up.  I too feel exhausted after a day with them and do admire Tab and Tina for having taken on this commitment though I hope I would too under those circumstances.

Yes I would as well, I wish them well.

It would be great if we could get some of their energy, I have just took a 5 year old home and could do with a nap.

There's no doubt about that Murray.
