Im WAY too young to be a granny only in my early 40s.... but my mom and mil are out of state grannies and I can tell you first hand what to do and what not to do to keep in touch.
1) VISIT and dont complain the whole time your there about the cost of the trip or that it is "your vacation too" so you have to be entertained 24/7.
2) Have them VISIT and dont constantly tell the child dont touch. Or make the chiild parade infront of your friends with out giving him/her something kid friendly to do at some point.
3) Dont tell mom she is doing it wrong. You can gently tell her what you found easiest.... but dont harp on how she is screwing up.
grrrr......... those are the ones that come to mind. (btw... I intend to be like my mil and NOT my mom)
