Maybe This time I will get a better response,I have wrote about this topic a few times only to get reply's saying,"You want money to babysit your own Grandkids?"Its probably women with Moms who r retired and have retirement SS coming in or who do not need the money.I wouldn't ask for it either except this is my case,I have taken care of my GD since born,never ask for anything,plus I do love and enjoy her very much.Now I understand the expression,If I'd known how wonderful it was being a grandparent,I'd.had them first:) anyway I have her 3 to 4 days a wk.8 to 10 hours each day,sometimes all weekend.My dd makes pretty good money and her and bf just got a place together.She works real hard being a Mom and taking care of their place.Sorry My deal here is I need to go back to work myself,My husband hours have been cut way down.When I mention all this to my dd she starts worrying about who's going to care for her dd?she hates the thought of daycare not to mention their prices!Wow I was surprised at how much they charge to.I just would need something a wk to help us out some,of course no where near daycare fees.She said she would rather pay me and that has been awhile back has given me very little and hasn't paid me since knowing our situation.Is this bad to ask for help for caring for your grandchild?when u do so much for your kid?And what if I don't want to be stuck home most the wk.caring for grandkids,I raised 4 and still have one home.How about you Grandma's that take care of Grandkids!What is ur situation?Sorry again soo long just feel quilty I guess for needing some help too!Answer Question
