Growing up with both sets of grandparents deceased, I am not familiar with how much grandparents do with their grandkids.
My inlaws want to do EVERYTHING with my little guy (he'll be 3 on the 14th). My MIL wants to take him to swimming lessons this fall and this winter my MIL & FIL want to teach him to ski. Is it normal for grandparents to do this much?
I feel a little jealous and think that me & my hubby should be the ones to share his first experiences with him and teach him new things.

There is room for a lot things. I would consider him to be very lucky to have grandparents involved in his life.

If you trust them, then this is a great situation for you and for your son. If there are certain things you want to do with your son, then let them know you want to be the one to do those things with him first. If you're like a lot of us, you may not have time or money to do all of the things with your child that you would like to do, and if that is the case the grandparents can help fill some of the gaps. Your son is very lucky to have grandparents who want to do special things with him. I'm sorry you didn't get to experience a special grandparent/grandchild relationship as a child.
