I have one sister that I grew up with, that has one daughter, therefore she is my niece. And I have three adult children and between two of them I have five granddaughters. I do not have reliable transportation, therefore I do not get to go to their homes to visit or take any of the granddaughter's to lunch or whatever. then when I ask one of my kids why they went to visit them and did not take me along they tell me that they do not need to because they are closer to them because they are their siblings and nieces. That grandmother's are not that close to them. But my sister and my niece call my mom a lot! They never talk to me, even tho i live in the same house. Does this happen to anyone else?

No, not to me. I am a great grandma and I don't get to see them like I used to. But, grandma does and that's what s important. My granddaughter used to have a FB account and took a lot of pics but she doesn't now so I don't see the little guys(two boys) that much.

@celticeagle Oh yeah sometimes, two of them only live a few blocks away and my mom watches the oldest one before school and walks her home from the bus in the afternoon. The oldest one that I babysit I see every week now only for about an hour the other 2 I rarely get to see. And they keep asking when I am coming over.

I feel for you. My three adult daughters live with me and I look after my one and only grandson. My children sometimes don't like to bring me along when they go out. They would leave me with my grandson at home. Even my grandson's mother doesn't like to bring her own son out. When they were younger, I brought them out everywhere I went. Now that they're all grown up, they won't bring me out with them. I guess it's true what my mom once said to me. Parents will treat their children like princes and princesses but children will not treat their parents like kings and queens.
