Having trouble connecting 2 my son: hes so busy& I feel as if I miss out w/him and his kids. How can a Grandmother connect w/ the grandchildren when they have their own lives? (Like to be more involved but daughter in law also (sons wife) seem to exclude me from my grandchildren's lives ). She doesn't always invite me over to their house because they btoh work; he works 60 hours , she wa week. I dont feel so Grandmotherly because they dont seem to want me around. It seems they just want the wifes Mother and father involved in their lives and I have no understanding why I am not alway included.Not that I dont want to be involved.It seems I alway have to wait for an invite or for my son to pencil me in his scheduling or wait for a birthday or Holiday before I am invited over. It seems they just want me 4 my money only. Not that I am rich. How can one get the daughter - in- law to include us in the children's lives?Answer Question

Sit your son down and tell him exactly what you just told us..........that you feel alienated from there life and you miss your grandchildren. Ask him what you both can do to help with the situation.
