Do your kids get to see the grandparents as often as you would like them to?My monm and dad used to live 2 hours away and we would take the kids to see them when we could.As it being a long drive and stuff.I used to spend the night at their house,my husband,me and the kids.But it was so tiring after awhile because I was so stressed packing stuff up especialy when I was pregnant with my and I jist couldnt do it as much.Especially after my daughter was born I just went and visited them becuase it was stressful packing stuff for a two nights stay.I would stay with them when my husband had to go out of state to do army training for a week or so on occasion.My kids got to see my husbands mom and great grandparents as seeing his mom lives with them.My husabnds dad gets to see them on occasion but he is so busy working they only see him whenver they get a chance.My mom and dad liveds in Florida now and I told my mom their is no way I could afford to come down their as I did when they lived 2 hours away seeina s to Florida would be a 18 hour drive.I told her I would come down to visit in July and stay till almost the end of August since my husband has to do army training for almost a whole month.I hope to get down their sooner but with my husabnds work schedule you can never tell.

As a grandparent I think I get to see my grandkids whenever I want. I am lucky as they only live about five minutes from me. My three year old grandson calls me almost every night(with help) to tell me goodnight. It is so sweet. But there are times when I don't see them a lot. We all have busy lives and the weather hasn't been the greatest. I'm sure when the weather gets better we will get together more.

Yes & no. My in-laws live 3 streets away so the girls see them often. They have actually been there for 3 days now. My family lives 2 hours away & i don't drive so we do not see them as often I would like. We are going to spend 5 days with them next week though.
